       August Ro (Illustrator)  
      August is an illustrator from a small town in the Far East. She specializes in book illustrations, and cozy conversations over a cup (or more) of tea. Inventing stories and telling them in her illustrations is what she truly loves. She considers pure magic that it is possible to tell stories without words and they will be clear to everyone. Her dream is to live in the forest and make friends with deers!
