Tony Piedra has been searching for adventure since he could hold a crayon. He has swum with sharks, met wild bears, and sailed to the moon (all without letting go of that same crayon). In between these adventures, he worked at Pixar Animation Studios, building 3D worlds for movies like Coco, Up, and Inside Out. The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) awarded him a Portfolio Showcase Honor in 2014. He lives with his family in Los Angeles. Visit him online at tonypiedrastudio.com.
