Taylor Ackerman

Artist Statement: 
Hey, I'm Taylor Ackerman, I am a children's illustrator and I makes work under the name Studio Looong (an ode to my little, furry, horizontally-gifted studio mates). My work focuses heavily around storytelling. I love making work that is whimsical, relatable, and just a tiny bit off-beat. Knobby people, bug-eyed creatures and quirky narratives are some of my favorite subjects.
Bio / Description: 

Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, I graduated from Bradley University in 2015 with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design and now I work full-time as a Designer at the University of Illinois in Champaign, Illinois. I spend every minute I can outside of work drawing and illustrating. My goal is to become a illustrator for Children's books and middle-grade graphic novels.
