Hi there. I’m Ward Jenkins. I draw and animate from my home in Atlanta, Georgia. 

I live with my photographer/writer wife, Andrea, and together we have two kids: Ava and Ezra. 

I have two books I've illustrated that came out fall of 2017: SALAM ALAIKUM: A MESSAGE OF PEACE (Salaam ReadsSimon + Schuster) and ROCKET SHOES (Sterling Publishing).

I am also a storyboard artist, having worked on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic & Chuck's Choice - both produced by DHX Media in Vancouver, BC; as well as Bing and Butterbean’s Cafe, both produced by Brown Bag Films in Dublin, Ireland.
