About the Illustrator:
From Erika Meza: I am a Mexican Migrant: colorful, bubbly, and a taco connoisseur. After studying graphic design back home (and moving house nearly 30 times) I lived in a dungeon with a princess in Paris to attend the Illustration (Image Imprimée) program at ENSAD, which got me addicted to chocolate éclairs and 2 am bike rides by the river. I now live with a cat in the UK where I work with ink, gouaches and watercolor pencils as an author and illustrator represented in my exploits by Claire Cartey.
