This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter and illustrator, Tom Everhart was a close friend of cartoonist Charles Schulz and is the only person authorized by Schulz to use characters created by the cartoonist in his own work.

To commemorate the loss of his friend, Everhart painted "The Tear", that shows Snoopy shedding a tear for the loss of his creator, Charles Schulz. Everhart painted the work on two life-sized wooden doors without handles, showing "the lack of control over the moment. Doors open and close, we enter and exit through them everyday, much like when we enter into a new period of our lives", said Everhart.

"Art Business News", February 2005

Biography from Animazing Gallery:
The only artist allowed by Charles Schulz to use the PEANUTS characters as subject matter, Everhardt creates originals on paper, and fine, lithographic limited-edition prints.  Critically acclaimed museum exhibits at the Louve, Tokyo, Milan and Los Angeles have launched this artist's career to new heights.  Bursting with dazzling color, expressionistic imagination, and in-your-face proportions, Tom Everhart's paintings are the culmination of 20 years of close association with cartoonist Charles M. Schulz and the PEANUTS™ phenomenon. 

The only fine artist authorized to artistically render the PEANUTS™ characters, Everhart had been a successful painter of large-scale landscapes before being asked to render drawings of the PEANUTS™ characters for a commercial project in 1980.  With no background in cartooning, Everhart prepared for the task by projecting Schulz's comic strips onto a 25-foot wall in his studio for closer examination.  He was stunned to discover that, blown up larger than life, Schulz's pen strokes closely connected to his own painting style.  His immediate fascination with Schulz's "line" - and his remarkable ability to capture it with his own distinct interpretation - impressed Schulz and this was the beginning of their beautiful friendship and collaboration.  In 1988, Everhart had the vision of taking the lovable PEANUTS™ gang to a new level of art - what one commentator would later dub "Expresstoonism."
