Axel Janssens

Biography of Axel Janssens, author and illustrator of the children's picture book "The Box" published by Clavis Publishing, New York.


Axel Janssens

Axel (1977, Ukkel, Belgium) works as an illustrator and a designer for various clients. At a young age he moved with his family to the countryside of Diest. The world that sprang from his imagination often took over. His grandfather, an ex-footballer, hoped that his grandson would cherish the same passion for the sport, but that wasn’t the case. The desire for a career as an engineer or a lawyer was also in vain. After a (relatively) carefree childhood and a somewhat more difficult puberty, it slowly became clear that Axel had been put in the cradle for only one thing. Of this he has made his profession.
