Janne Kukkonen was born 1983 in Rovaniemi Finland. He spent his childhood reading and drawing comics and never even considered doing anything else when he grows up. He was an animator at Lybecker Institute in Raahe, has worked on various music videos, commercials and animated shorts, while writing his own scripts and stories on his free time. In 2014 he took a break from animation and started drawing his first graphic novel (later published in English as Lily the Thief), which became an award-winning smash hit. Now he works full time, writing and illustrating his own comics, and still wouldn't consider doing anything else when he grows up.
