The Design Department at Columbia College Chicago is pleased to present How to make a living by making things up: A career of silly pictures and made-up facts, a lecture by Tom Lichtenheld

Tom Lichtenheld is a children’s book author and illustrator. He doodled his way through school then worked as a sign painter, set designer, printer and advertising art director. After a successful career in advertising he gradually made the switch to creating children’s books.

Tom’s books, many of which are New York Times Best Sellers, are consistently praised for their humor, expressive characters, and rich – sometimes hidden – detail. He’s known for creating books that appeal to children and adults alike, and his wide portfolio of books offers something for every age.

Slated for release in 2016 are Holy Cow I Sure Do Love You (created in collaboration with Amy Krouse Rosenthal) and Groovy Joe, Ice Cream and Dinosaurs (created in collaboration with Eric Litwin).

Tom lives in the Chicago area. In his spare time he likes to get other peoples’ kids all wound up then send them home to their parents.
