Hello! My name is Jemma Jose, and I'm an illustrator for books and comics based in very sunny Chennai, India. I've been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil and I'm thrilled to call it my full-time job now. My art style has been influenced by the animated films I grew up with ( like the Disney films of the 90's and gems from Studio Ghibli), being especially taken by their character design. So often, the first step I take with each new project is to figure out the characters and the world they live in. I have worked on several picture books, comics and personal commissions.
In my free time, I like to swing heavy kettlebells and draw far too many comics about my adorable Indie dog, Roku. If you'd like to read about my art journey and get some insight into my work process, head on over to my Journal, where I attempt to regularly share tips, case studies and process videos.
You can also follow me on Instagram and Twitter where I regularly post my own art and comics.
