Illustrator Bio

Christopher J. Padgett began drawing as a young child and continued in the visual arts as a photojournalist for newspapers into college, where he earned a BFA in film with a concentration in animation at Columbia College of Chicago. Christopher has always loved children, and his dream came true when he became a father to a red-headed, blue-eyed girl named Annette. Some nights when she had a hard time sleeping, she asked for him to draw beside her, and Annette contributed here and there to help bring the illustrations of Redrick and his friends to life.
