Arree Chung makes picture books, but he did a lot of other things before finding his true passion. Arree began his career in consulting where he made lots of spreadsheets. Arree left the consulting field for an opportunity at Pixar. At Pixar, Arree learned the secret to success: loving what you do. To pursue his passion, Arree enrolled at the Art Center College of Design where he learned to draw, paint, and think differently. In Steven Turk’s Children’s Book Illustration class, Arree discovered his love for creating children’s picture books and the rest is history!
In the past decade, Arree has worked in the games industry as a Designer and Art Director. Arree’s first debut picture book, Ninja! hit shelves in 2014, followed by Ninja! Attack of the Clan in 2016. Aree has also wrote and illustrated Ninja Claus and Out! When Arree is not practicing his Ninja moves, you can find him playing basketball or riding his bike.
