Dapo Adeola - Click to see all titles by this author.

Dapo Adeola creates characters and images that challenge assumptions about gender, race, and ethnicity in a fun and upbeat way. He runs illustration and character-design workshops in and out of schools, to help spotlight the possibility of a career in illustration for inner-city children. He lives in London.

The main character, Rocket, was modeled after Sarah, his niece, who Dapo describes as a bold, brave, curious and confident girl. Dapo focused on portraying these wonderful traits in the character instead of trying to figure out how the character would fit in the space predominately meant for white boys and Rocket was born.
