children's book

Made a poster for the game Shadow of Colossus. Such a great game. It’s therapeutic to me. Here’s to hoping that The Last Guardian sees the light of day. 

If you would like to buy a print you can do so here ( inprnt )

Enjoy!

From Mediabistro:

Artist Maxime Mary created a Little Golden Books-style book jacket and one interior page showcasing characters from the popular crime TV series. The other artists behind the “Little Golden Tales” exhibit contributed pieces based on Lord of the RingsDoctor Who, and more.

According to io9, “some of the works pay tribute to the actual characters and artwork found in the classic children’s books, while others re-imagine other (sometimes inappropriate) works of pop culture in Golden Book form.” This art show is currently on display at a California-based establishment called Gallery Nucleus. It will close on February 09, 2014.

The best kind of birthdays. I remember staying up super late with friends for a sleep over birthday party when I was a little kid. I have some really great memories from those days. 

This is for an upcoming zine titled Bloom that I am working on with a group of friends/artists. There will be a total of nine zines and each one is based on a color and a word. 

Keep a look out for more!

Big Hair, Don’t Care (2013)

“Lola has really really REALLY big hair, much bigger than the other kids at her school, but that doesn’t stop her from telling anyone who will listen just how much she LOVES her hair! It´s not always easy being a kid. 

Designed to boost self-esteem and build confidence, this beautifully illustrated picture book is aimed at boys and girls who may need a reminder from time to time that it’s okay to look different from the other kids at their school.“

The Colors of Us (1999)

“My name is Lena and I am seven. I am the color of cinnamon. Mom says she could eat me up.”

Lena is going to paint a picture of herself. She wants to use brown paint for her skin. But when Lena and her mother take a walk through their neighborhood, Lena sees that there are many different shades and tones of brown. Seen from an artist’s point of view, skin colors are subtle, varied–and cause for celebration!

Karen Katz created this book for her daughter, Lena, whom she and her husband adopted from Guatemala six years ago.
