Hi, I'm Jeremy Billups. I have been writing and illustrating stories since I was 6 years old. After attending Boise State University and earning degrees in Illustration and Graphic Design I finally found the courage to start sharing my stories with the world. In 2015, I released my first book, Bearded. It's been downhill ever since. :)
I live in Boise, Idaho with my wife & daughter, a lawn I hate to mow and a desk overflowing with projects I can't wait to share.
I Support First Book!
In some of the lowest-income neighborhoods in the country there is only one book available for every 300 children. To date, First Book has provided more than 135 million books to children in need, increasing access to needed materials for educators and administrators, and helping to elevate educational opportunities for our nation’s most disadvantaged youth.
