About the Artist

Jme Foronda is an illustrator of fantastical things and Filipino culture. She draws inspiration from her massive collection of children’s books, art books, graphic novels, and Filipiniana. Born and raised in Manila, she fell in love with animation, drawing from life, and telling stories. She was accepted to the University of the Philippines, College of Fine Arts, majoring in Visual Communications. Jme lives with her husband and two kids somewhere in Washington state, working on her next publications and accepting commission work when available. She has a huge book fort, and loves inviting friends (artists and non- artists alike) to read and draw with her over a cup of coffee and a pastry or two.
