After graduating with a B.F.A. in Book Illustration from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena California, Armand Baltazar began a visual storytelling career in animation. He worked as a background artist, then as a visual and story development artist, and art director for DreamWorks Studios, Walt Disney Animation, and Pixar Animation Studio. While working on these films, Armand created TIMELESS, an award-winning illustrated adventure story for his son. It is the first illustrated novel in his middle grade series for HarperCollins Publishing. TIMELESS is currently in feature film development for Twentieth Century and Walt Disney Studios. You can see the art from the Timeless series and get updates on upcoming books and appearances at timelessarmandbaltazar.com
