About Allison Black
I worked for two years in the baby bedding industry before I was hired by Target. For the next seven years I worked in-house on various teams including: the Seasonal Team, Stationery Team, Toddler Apparel, Bullseye's Playground, and the 2D Art Team. I worked directly with factories and vendors, gave art direction and feedback, designed proprietary artwork and products, and developed my illustration style and artistic voice. In 2017 I left Target to work for myself and to focus more on the children's book industry.
Over the years, I've developed an enormous range of products from baby bedding to kid's clothing, Christmas ornaments to summer toys. I've collaborated with various stationery companies to develop playful greeting cards and I have my own line, Hip-Hip, which can be found in my shop. But no matter what I'm creating, I always bring a little Allison flair to the project through my bold color palettes, playful illustrations, and thoughtful design.
Besides making art, I enjoying gardening, traveling, eating sweet treats and going for walks. I love animals and bugs and I share my home with two ridiculous dogs, a grumpy cat and two chatty guinea pigs. I have a young son, a one year old daughter and an amazing husband. I feel very lucky to do what I love for a living!
