Growing up, Varun enjoyed both comic books and novels for children and enjoyed drawing and painting as well. The art in books and cartoons always excited him as a child and his lifelong hobby in drawing as well as his education at Academy of Art University (AAU) San Francisco has given him the tools and experience to realize his goals. He has drawn for school teachers in his area for books and pamphlets they used in aiding their lessons and has gone on to illustrate Goldy and Friends and Their Amazing Adventure! by Dr. Frederick J. Zorn. His background in art and the many cartoons and books he watched and read growing up have helped him see what really stands out and impacts the audience.
