Then I got a book deal. I'm so so so excited about this. Having a book deal has been a life long dream of mine. To walk into a store, and see my book on a shelf. To see a kid reading my book. To see MY kid reading MY book! And now, in the Spring of 2014 it'll happen.
I'm very pleased to announce that I'm illustrating a middle grade graphic novel called Muddy Max, written by fellow Portlander Liz Rusch, to be published by Andrews McMeel/AMP! Comics for Kids. Muddy Max tells the story of Max, a sixth grader who discovers he's transformed into a super hero when he gets muddy.
Here's some early promotional artwork for the book.
Sometimes you get what you want!
