Hello! My name is Amy Kenney, and I'm a freelance illustrator based in Kansas City. I make comics, editorial illustrations, products for my online shop Hot Mama Bakery, and I make children’s books. Children's books are better than adult books in the same way that kids are better than adults. They get to pure, deep emotions quickly. They are often really smart without trying too hard. And they can be incredibly weird without shame. I love bringing a sense of humor and weirdness to all of my projects. And pure, deep emotions are my favorites. 

When I'm not working in my studio, I'm usually hiding from my five children and eating snacks. And I sometimes text my husband to see if he wants to run away with me. But mostly I'm in my studio.
