Parsons illustration alumnus Jannie Ho (’99) wrote us, saying:
just wanted to drop a line about my latest picture book, The Haunted Ghoul Bus, written by Lisa Trumbauer, illustrated by me.
Born in Hong Kong and raised in Philadelphia, Jannie worked as a graphic designer at Nickelodeon, Scholastic and an associate art director at TIME magazine for Kids before deciding that illustration was her true calling. Also known as Chicken Girl, Jannie now creates digital illustrations for children’s books, magazines, and a variety of other clients. Much of her work and style has been inspired by Japanese and retro art. BesidesThe Haunted Ghoul Bus, Jannie has also worked on The Mixed-Up Alphabet (Scholastic, 2007), written by Steve Metzger, and The Penguins’ Perfect Picnic (Innovative Kids, 2007), written by Trish Rabe.
