Meet Tony Piedra

In a previous chapter of my life, I was a Sets Technical Director at Pixar Animation Studios.  For nine years, I collaborated with some of the most talented artists and storytellers in the world to help realize the environments in films, such as, UpCars 2The Good DinosaurInside Out, and Coco, as well as several of Pixar's short films, including The Blue Umbrella.

Now, I am taking the skills and experiences from my time working in the film industry and putting them to use as an author and illustrator of children’s books.  

My debut picture book, The Greatest Adventure, will be released Fall 2018 through Arthur A. Levine Books an Imprint of Scholastic Inc.
