Vicky Lommatzsch is a Belgian children's illustrator. At the age of 5, she watched her older brother draw Jolly Jumper. Fascinated by seeing a character come to life on paper, she realised there was a magical world other than the one we live in, one where anything is possible. She has been drawing and playing in that parallel universe ever since.
