Tom Sarmo owns and works in the Cranky Bird Studio.
He’s been at it professionally for over 25 years, and has work in a variety of collections, galleries, and publications including childrens books, magazines, and related merchandise. He is a member of the Denver Illustration Salon.
Tom is passionate about nearly all art, but most particularly the creative, illustrative type.
He uses a variety of media, and his subject matter is fed by his interests: Romantic and Victorian Literature, 19th century and medieval subjects, history, the sciences, hand-drawn animated film, almost all types of music, and peculiar places.
He’s also dedicated to sharing knowledge; he is an instructor with Art Makers Denver, and also teaches a variety of workshops at Foothills Art Center and at other venues across the state.
