Julia Henauer

I am an Illustrator & Motion Graphics Designer based in Somerset. I have substantial experience in creating high quality illustration for physical merchandise, products, advertising materials and books. As well as creating visual effects and dynamic motion graphics for television and online media.

During the BA course I developed a passion for character design and illustration aimed at children. In my final year, I had the opportunity to illustrate my very first children’s book called “Taffy and the Tapir Party” which will be published later this year.

Taffy is on her way to the ferry that will bring her to the annual tapir party, but on her way she meets friends that all need her help. Will she still make it to the ferry in time?
