Trip Park was drawn to advertising long before he illustrated. He first worked as an Art Director with ad agencies Leo Burnett, and Saatchi & Saatchi, but working with and hiring all his favorite illustrators as an Art Director gave him an intoxicating look into their side of the business. He stumbled into illustrating a number of children's books and just kept falling for them, such as the 16-book series, Rotten School, written by R. L. Stine. He has helped develop characters for Blue Sky Studios for some features in development, and helped create the recent animated McDonald's campaign as an art director once again with Leo Burnett. His blog can be seen at trippark.blogspot.com.
