Jacob Grant

Hello! I’m Jacob Grant, and I’m an author and illustrator who makes picture books.
Originally from Ohio, I now live in Chicago with my patient wife and two less-than-patient children. When not trying to wrangle these little forces of nature, you’ll most likely find me drawing, painting and writing in my home studio, until something feels story-ish. With a bit of luck, some of this mess gets made into books!
