Jemma Jose is a freelance illustrator based in Chennai, India who is happy to tell anyone who will listen that she draws for a living. She always knew art and illustration were in her future thanks to the picture books her folks unwittingly got her as a kid. Over the years, these books and characters would bring her many moments of joy and she hopes to create artwork that will do the same for the next generation of readers.
She is a huge fan of animated films and watches them far too often for ‘research’. She gets very excited about character design and visual development and tries to bring as much interest and diversity to the people and places in every story. She spends her free time with books, swinging heavy kettlebells and drawing way too many comics about her adorable pup, Roku.
