    A native to Southern California, Andrea Yomtob graduated cum laude with her BFA in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.  She worked for twenty years as a Computer Animator/FX Artist at Nickelodeon and Film Roman on shows including SpongeBob Squarepants and Dora The Explorer until 2019.  She was also an Art Docent at LACMA for children.

    As a full-time picture book author/illustrator, Yomtob enjoys combining mediums like watercolor and collage with her digital skills as an animator.



  • It’s my passion to illustrate picture books and develop stories for kids!

    I enjoy using mediums that use a hands-on approach such as watercolor, ink and collage. Then, assembling them using digital skills learned in my 20 year career as an animator.

    I enjoy the revision process and collaborating on projects. I look forward to the two writing groups I participate in monthly along with the great one-on-one and mentored critique groups offered through Storyteller Academy.

    I reside with my husband and two young gremlins :-) in Los Angeles, CA.
