Sarah Jacoby is an illustrator and artist, a writer and all around creative thinker and maker. When making pictures she prefers to use brushes and inks and loves calling upon memories to bring her imagery to life. In the recent past, she studied literature and film at Haverford college and earned her M.F.A in at the Illustration Practice Program at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) in Baltimore. She lives in Brooklyn and works with the creative team at Tinybop during the day and writes and draws stories at night and in the early mornings.
Sarah has worked as a sound archivist, a coffee slinger, a digital media specialist, a lifeguard, and a movie theater projectionist among other things. This varied existence aptly portrays Sarah’s constant desire to explore, experiment, and play. For Sarah illustration is a unique and important forum in which all of these actions combine in a universal way.
Sarah has contributed to books about illustration, has shown internationally and throughout the United States, has published work online and in magazines, and has won awards. Have a peek at her resume/cv if you'd like further details.
