Unquestionably, Tom Tierney deserves to be known as the King of Paper Dolls. For decades his prolific output of books has made him the most successful paper doll artist of all time. While Tom is the best known paper doll artist in the world, he didn't begin this chapter of his career until 1974 when Thirty from the Thirties, a book of Hollywood stars was published. Tom had originally created it as a gift for his mother when he was enjoying phenomenal success as a fashion illustrator. Tom studied with fine teachers and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Texas College of Fine Arts. A stint in the army did nothing to slow down his pursuit of art. He painted a four-star general's portrait, did posters for the WAACs during the day and freelanced fashion illustration at night.When he moved to New York City in 1954, Tom rose to the top of the ranks in commercial fashion illustration. Because of his serious fine art training he was equally comfortable drawing women, men and children. As the popularity of fashion illustration began to wane, Tom almost single handedly revitalized the lagging paper doll publishing business. In 1978 he connected with Dover Publishing where he produced scores of popular paper dolls, all rendered in his instantly recognizable style with a strong, supremely sure line. His long career resulted in more than 500 printed works! The latest chapter in Tom's incredible career is his collaboration with Paper Studio Press, creating a line of paper dolls focusing on fashions through history. His titles include Pretty in Pink, Rosie the Riveter, Fun With Grandma, History of Denim, Tom Tierney's History of Swimwear and Stopover Paper Dolls. Equally beloved as he was talented, Tom Tierney passed away at age 85 on July 12, 2014, leaving an extraordinary legacy of paper dolls and fond memories.
