Illustrator and author Loren Long earned his bachelor of fine arts degree in graphic design/art studio from the University of Kentucky, followed by graduate studies in illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Before settling into a career of illustrating and writing picture books, he already had a client list that included major magazines such as Forbes, Time, Atlantic Monthly and Sports Illustrated, as well as big-name publishers like Harper Collins, Penguin, Houghton Mifflin and the National Geographic Society. Among his numerous honors are Golden Kite Awards for the books I Dream of Trains by Angela Johnson and When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer by Walt Whitman, and his selection by Madonna to illustrate her book Mr. Peabody’s Apples and by President Obama to illustrate his book Of Thee I Sing. Long’s lithograph print, The Tornado, is part of the permanent collection of the Cincinnati Art Museum.
