Tomi Ungerer (b. 1931) is a French illustrator known for both his children’s book drawings and his profane adult illustrations. Born in Strasbourg, France, he moved to New York in 1956, where he published his first children’s book and began working for publications that included LIFE and the New York Times. He is known for his social satire, and his work ranges from the fantastic to the autobiographical. He has published over 140 books, but his career also encompassed architectural design, invention, advertising, and sculpture. He was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen medal for his contribution to children’s literature, and the Tomi Ungerer Museum opened in Strasbourg in 2007. The artist currently lives between Ireland and Strasbourg.
