About the Illustrator

Aoife Nunan is an animation student from North Cork. Inspired from a young age by character creation and animation design, she decided to study animation in college. During these studies, she developed a passion for illustrating and character design. This led to a love of strong line art and her work reflects her delight in the creation of exaggerated facial expressions and characters displaying a surrealistic portrayal of emotion.

Aoife was excited by the prospect of working on the illustrations for this book, as it gave her an opportunity to use her skills to create and inflect emotion into colorful jungle characters as well as the human ones. She also had a lot of fun creating the jungle scenes for this book.
