Taylor Ackerman, Children's Illustrator and designer, Champaign Illinois

A little about me. 

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). 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.

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 full-time illustrator specializing in Children's books and middle-grade graphic novels.
