About the Author

Julie Van Grol is an illustrator and instructor based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her clients include the St. Paul Public Library, Health Partners, Vestiges, Inc., and Saint Olaf College. Her work has been featured on Huffington Post and AJ+. She is a part-time instructor at Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where she teaches courses in both the history of illustration and studio courses in illustration practice. Van Grol earned her Masters degree in Illustration from Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and has since focused her practice both storytelling and social justice. A firm believer in the power of images and visibility, she devotes herself to telling stories and depicting characters who have historically been kept in the margins. When she isn't hunched over her laptop or have pencil in hand, Van Grol is outside as much as the Minneapolis climate allows; usually running around a lake, or biking around her beautiful city.
