Barry Gott

BARRY GOTT has been drawing and creating his entire life. His first ABC book was drawn on the backs of paint can labels from his dad’s paint factory. Skipping the awkward years, Barry got a Bachelor of Fine Art from Bowling Green State University–and upgraded from paint can labels to beige computers. He was a writer and artist on staff at American Greetings before launching into the pajama-friendly world of full-time freelancing. For the last 16 years he’s been creating children’s books, humorous greeting cards, and various other art bits in his attic studio in Cleveland, Ohio.

CLIENTS:  Lerner Books, Dutton Books, HarperCollins, Random House, Scholastic, Harcourt, Albert Whitman & Co., Time Warner, Penguin Putnam, Kane Press, Recycled Paper Greetings, American Greetings, and plenty more.

What are we doing this weekend? READING! Art by Joyce Wan. Follow Joyce at @joycewanbooks Joyce writes: Hi everyone! Didn’t mean to dissapear on you. I got my voice back last week but have been struggling a bit to work on meeting some deadlines while my daughter is home (for at least another 4 weeks 😱)! I do have some exciting news for fans of the picture books PUG MEETS PIG and PUG AND PIG TRICK-OR-TREAT that I illustrated by Sue Gallion. There is a third book in the works featuring some new friends! Here is a sneak peak of them on a poster I created to celebrate the new book. Hope you are hanging in there. I am thinking about you all and I plan to post more videos very soon. Stay well! ❤️ . . . . . . . . #kidlit #kidlitart #wahmlife #wahm #illustratorsoninstagram #illustratorsofig #illustratorsofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #pugmeetspig #pugsofinstagram #pigsofinstagram #picturebook #picturebooks #picturebooksofinstagram #joycewan

Just a friendly reminder to reach out to someone you love! Art by Ellen Stubbings. Follow Ellen at @ellen_stubbings . Ellen writes:Hope everyone is keeping safe and well 💕 I made this more of a reminder to myself but I think it might be handy for other people too! I’m mostly dealing with isolation ok but I find I’ve been missing friends and family so giving someone a call can be a good mood boost! It’s also nice to check in on your pals. I get so wrapped up in work sometimes that I forget but I’m determined to do better 😤 . . #illustration #illustrator #illustrationartists #illustratorsoninstagram #illustrated #illustrationoftheday #illustrate #illustrations #illustrators #illustration_art #illustratorsofinstagram #illustrationart #illustration_daily #illustrationdaily #illustrationaday #illustrationartist #cuteart #instaartist #instaart #instaillustration #instaillustrator #art #artistsoninstagram #artistoninstagram #artist #procreate #digitalart #digitalartist #kidlitart #ellenstubbings
