About Christina Wald

I am an illustrator, industrial designer and most of the time I work on children’s books and toys. I love comics and do them in my “spare” time.

Pop Smoothie: Strange tales from the Blender is a comic distillation of the pop-culture invading my brain at the time I am sketching. I think I have the TV on too much…

Yes, I did a lot of illustration for RPGs, CCGs and Dragon Magazine in the 90s (some of them are posted here: http://christinawaldgames.blogspot.com/)

My daily work is here: http://christinawald.blogspot.com/

I live in Cincinnati with my toy engineer husband Troy (Fun Factoid: Troy used to be on the Batman team at Kenner Toys and also designed toys for Ghostbusters, Rat Fink (he is mentioned in Ed ‘Big Daddy’ Roth’s biography), Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean and many other lines) and 2 cats (they don’t design anything really)…

Fun Trivia: I share a birthday with Janeanne Garofalo, Naomi Watts and Moon Unit Zappa…
