Taylor Ackerman

A little about me. 

Hey, I'm Taylor, the illustrator and designer behind Studio Looong. I have been a full-time graphic designer since graduating from college in 2015, but my love for art  goes way back to elementary school when my dream was to be a combination cartoonist and guinea pig breeder.

Jumping forward a few years, I'm not quite a cartoonist and my love for rodents has wained immensely. Today I work 9-5 as a Strategic Design Specialist at the University of Illinois and from 5-9 I illustrate from the home office that I share with two very long dogs and one giant tortoise.

I love telling stories through my art. Good stories have the ability to transcend time to bring out shared feelings and experiences among a diverse group of people. I want to use illustration to make them more accessible for a new generation.
