Tom Drews created his first stick person at the age of six. To this day, it’s still his favorite thing to draw. He currently lives in the city of San Francisco and enjoys hanging out with close friends, riding his bike through the lands, and pursuing a handful of creative endeavors.

After graduating from UC Boulder, Tom moved to Hollywood and explored the world of acting and improv. Following this creative adventure, he spent the next five years counseling at-risk kids in a youth center while at the same time substitute teaching grades K-12.

The inspiration for The Land of Stick came primarily from these experiences and the lessons Tom learned along the way. He discovered that most kids want to feel like it’s cool to be just who they are!

History

We started wtih a greeting card line called Stick People Greetings. Then we thought, let's put the stick people on clothing. That would be cool. At some point in time you could find the stick people in Macy's, Footlocker, Kids R us, etc. Now we have a book!

Schools

During the past several years, we've delivered readings and programs for groups of kids in schools. We ask, how do you feel you're different? The hands go up in the air. Hey, I have big ears? Well, I bet it cushions your head when you fall down. So kind.
