Billy Tokyo was born and lives in Chicago (he visited Tokyo once but got really, really lost). He painted a huge mural on his son Jack's bedroom wall of a tree with lots of birds in it. Some birds are reading books. Some birds are riding bikes. And some birds are eating pizza. Billy would be the bird eating pizza. Billy has also created posters and artwork for some of the largest rock concerts in the world, including Lollapalooza and South by Southwest. His favorite classroom job was caretaker, watering the plants.
