Tom Shannon is an illustrator of children's books and editorials, including Sometimes It Rains and There's a Fish in My Tent by Paul Du Fresne. He recently became a contributing illustrator for A List Apart.

Tom holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Western Washington University, attended Pacific Northwest College of Art, is a member of the Society of Illustrators (New York / Los Angeles) and a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators.

Mission statement: My work is not a drawing or painting of a subject. It tells a story/narrative and evokes emotion.
