Tomi Ungerer was born in Strasbourg and emigrated to America in 1956. He lived in New York for 13 years, then he moved to Canada, and finally settled in Ireland. Ungerer worked in just about every medium available to graphic designers. He designed posters, illustrated numerous books for adults and children, and produced sculptures and other 'objets d'art.' His limitless imagination and creativity took his work from the gentlest images for children to the most violently satirical style.
