From Ohio to LA
Jessica Woo is an author\illustrator, and a mom of two wild things. Her debut children’s book, What To Do About Your Monsters, was inspired by her oldest child. Very quickly after Jessica became a mother, she found that while adults like to sleep, kids are way too busy to ever go to bed.
Her second book she illustrated came out two years later called A Grammarian Superhero Book, Write with Power. On this project she worked with a non profit to help bring the love of writing to kiddos, especially those who are underprivileged.
Other than convincing her little ones to sleep at night, Jessica’s other talents include professional animation, art direction, and illustration. In Illustration, Jessica most recently worked on a concept art piece for Universal. In art direction, her recent project, Dinner Party, was accepted in the exclusive Sundance film festival. Finally, in animation, her work is featured in movies such as Kung Fu Panda, Monster vs Aliens, Shrek 4, Kung Fu Panda Holiday Special, Kung Fu Panda 2, The Croods, and Turbo.
An active member of SCBWI , Jessica currently lives in Toluca Lake California with her family.
