Chip Sullivan is an artist and professor of landscape architecture at the College of Environmental Design, University of California: Berkeley. He received the 2016 Jot D. Carpenter Teaching Medal, one of the highest awards the American Society of Landscape Architects presents.

His latest book, Cartooning the Landscape, concerns the metaphysics of drawing and learning how to ‘see.’ The Foundation for Landscape Studies selected Cartooning the Landscape for the 2017 John Brinckerhoff Jackson prize for accomplishment in the field of garden history and landscape studies.

Professor Sullivan is the author of Drawing the Landscape, a popular treatise on drawing and the creative process, now in its 4th edition. His beautifully illustrated book Garden and Climate is a detailed analysis of the history of energy conserving landscape design. It received a merit award from the American Society of Landscape Architects.
