Jessica Chrysler spent her summers tracing the big cats in National Geographic magazine and reading every fairytale book she could find in the library. Her passion for storytelling and creating art led to a career in children’s illustration. She has illustrated several published books including Your Greatest Adventure, which is listed on Donovan's Bookshelf as May 2018's Pick of the Month, and A Word to Rhyme with Orange, which was featured in the Orange County Register and at the 2014 Orange County Book Fair.
Currently, Jessica lives on the west side of Los Angeles and is working on her Masters in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Hamline University. She has done illustrative work for a variety of industries from urban farming to home decor, and for clients like Sony Computer Entertainment America, Klasky-Csupo Inc., and Teacher Created Resources Inc. She also shows her work at local festivals and venues such as ComicCon San Diego, WonderCon, DesignerCon, El Segundo Library, and Downtown LA Art Walk.
