about me & contact info


I’m an author/illustrator specializing in silly stories and funny drawings for kids (and immature adults). I live with my family and a few furry friends in Newburyport, MA. My first picture book, Even Monsters will soon be followed up by Tyra And Tops in 2019. For picture book inquiries, please contact me directly at AJSmith.net@gmail.com, (585) 613-6247.

Along with writing and illustrating children’s books, I juggle creative projects for exciting clients like Cartoon Network, Fablevision, Highlights, The Jim Henson Co, MTV, Nat Geo Kids, Nickelodeon, PBS Kids, Ranger Rick, Scholastic, Sesame Street Workshop, Sourcebooks, and Weston Woods. When not scribbling and doodling, I love hiking, hockey, comedy, and anything art-related.
