Brian Schmidt has been lost in the magical world of drawing since he was a kid, creating mazes, castles, and creatures galore. He found his calling as an illustrator after his career in architecture left him wanting more time to be creative. From there, the idea for an illustrating business was born. Now, he happily spends his days continuing to get lost in the worlds and characters he creates, and hoping they bring a little magic and whimsy to other people. He lives and works in the Twin Cities in Minnesota with his wife, Sara.
