Rachel Ignotofsky is a New York Times Best Selling author and  illustrator, based in beautiful Los Angeles.   She grew up in New Jersey on a healthy diet of cartoons and pudding. She graduated from Tyler School of Art's Graphic Design in 2011. 

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 ideas. Check out her books The Wondrous Workings of Planet Earth Women In Science and Women In Sports.

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 and feminism.
