In 1961, three-year-old Ed Tuttle sat on his front porch with paper and pen and began copying cartoons from his Little Golden Books. Hundreds of pads, pencils, paints and crayons later, big dreams and an empty wallet led Ed from Connecticut to San Diego where he began work as a mechanical artist in 1979. He returned to Connecticut in 1981, working as apprentice for one of the finest design studios in Connecticut, and later served for 16 years as a corporate senior designer. Currently, Ed is the principal of eklektos, his own design and illustration studio. This is his first children’s book.
