Tom Everhart was born on May 21, 1952 in Washington, D.C. He began his under graduate studies at the Yale University of Art and Architecture in 1970. In 1972 he participated in an independent study program under Earl Hoffman at St. Mary’s College. He returned to the Yale School of Art and Architecture in 1974 where he completed his graduate work in 1976, followed by post-graduate studies at the Musee de l’Orangerie, in Paris. He taught Life Drawing and Painting, briefly from 1979 to 1980, at Antioch College.
In 1980, he was introduced to cartoonist Charles M. Schulz at Shultz’s studios in Santa Rosa, California. A few weeks prior to their meeting, Everhart, having absolutely no education in cartooning, found himself involved in a freelance project that required him to draw and present Peanuts renderings to Schulz’s studios. Completely impressed with Schultz’s line, he was able to reproduce the line art almost exactly. This, in turn, impressed Schulz at their meeting.
A few years later, Everhart began drawing special projects for Schulz and United Media. These authentic Schulz-style drawings included covers and interiors of magazines, art for The White House and the Met Life Campaign.
Today, Everhart is the only fine artist educated by Schulz and legally authorized by both Charles Schulz and Iconix to use subject matter from Schulz’s Peanuts strip to create fine art.
