Hello! There are a lot of Sarah Jacobys in the world. I am Sarah Jacoby the Illustrator. 


I draw pictures for a living.  Some of those pictures are for children's books, some are for galleries and a few are for bedroom walls. I've contributed to books about illustration and have shown art internationally and throughout the United States. I've created work for folks like The New York Times, and have won awards in fancy places like the Society of Illustrators. 

You can reach me at hello (at) thesarahjacoby (dot com).

Please send book related inquiries to Steven Malk at Writers House.
