As his dad careened around corners on the way to the hospital, Steve Bjorkman was born in the front seat of a ’49 Ford convertible. The first of four children, he has been drawing, painting and spilling ink on shirts, carpets and chairs ever since.
Steve has illustrated nearly 100 picture books. Everything from an early version of FLAT STANLEY to New York Times best selling books by comedian and TV host Jeff Foxworthy. Steve’s strengths are communicating exuberance, action and emotion. From the Silly characters in GERMS, GERMS, GERMS to the childhood frustration of learning a new language in I HATE ENLISH, Steve’s ink and watercolor art bring the heart of the text to life.
Steve also writes picture books and continues to explore new ideas, themes and genres. He continues to push himself in new artistic directions as well.
