Rachel Ignotofsky is an illustrator, and author based in beautiful Kansas City, MO.   She grew up in New Jersey on a healthy diet of cartoons and pudding. She graduated with honors from Tyler School of Art's Graphic Design in 2011.  Rachel's first job was at Hallmark Greetings as a Senior Designer until she left to pursue her dreams in 2015.

Now Rachel works for herself and spends all day and night drawing, writing and learning as much as she can. Rachel is a published author with 10 Speed Press and is always thinking up new books and illustrations.

Her work is inspired by history and science. She believes that illustration is a powerful tool that can make learning exciting.  She has a passion for taking dense information and making it fun and accessible. Rachel hopes to use her work to spread her message about scientific literacy.
