 Christina Wald specializes in illustration, toy and giftware design, and product design. She has illustrated over 40 children's books and done artwork for many other books, magazines, packaging and products.

Her obsessions include travel, reading, comics, audiobooks, movies, good TV, stand up comedy, musicals, game nights, design, animation, urban sketching, sketching, and the fantastical.

Any spare time she has is used to plan trips and travel-preferably to other countries as budget allows.

She lives in Cincinnati with her toy engineer husband Troy (Fun Factoid: Troy used to be on the Batman team at Kenner Toys and also designed toys for Ghostbusters, Rat Fink (he is mentioned in Ed ‘Big Daddy’ Roth’s biography), Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean and many other lines) and 2 cats (they don’t design anything really)…

Another Fun Factoid: She shares a birthday with Janeanne Garofalo, Naomi Watts and Moon Unit Zappa…
