Hey there! I'm Jon Lightle, an illustrator, and designer who works in commercial, editorial, kids books, picture books, middle-grade, and graphic novel illustration. Recent clients include working with Chronicle Books.
I also make prints, cards, risographs, zines, and design products on Etsy.
I make a podcast called Whispers to Bravery where I share ideas, insights & guidance on creating & living mindfully.
I currently live in Toledo, Ohio with my wife and three kids. I can’t shuffle a deck of cards, but I can spot Ikea furniture in backgrounds of movies, shows, and commercials.
