Jamey Christoph

Jamey’s illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and in several award winning children’s books, including Gordon Parks How the Photographer Captured Black and White America, winner of the NAACP Image Award for children’s literature. His new book, Up in the Leaves The True Story of the Central Park Treehouses, by Shira Boss, was released in April. An old soul at heart, his work draws inspiration from vintage advertising and travel posters and a lifelong curiosity of the past, particularly in the character of old buildings, cars, fashion, and music. He has received multiple recognitions from the Society of Illustrators, Communication Arts, and 33 Magazine. He lives and works out of his 1920’s home in Cleveland Heights with his crazy dogs, Owen and Jack.
