Hemu Wu resides in Hunan, China, where he illustrates children’s books. At first, Hemu was not interested in children’s picture books, until one day, as he was browsing a bookshop, he took a closer look at them. From then on, Hemu discovered his passion for creating picture books. Hemu likes everything about nature, taking his dog with him when he draws in the forest, and living simply. As long as he has books to read, tools to draw, and bread, then he’s all set. Hemu has many stories to share with his readers.
