How to Talk to Girls

A couple of months ago, I had the pleasure of illustrating this really cute and funny book called "How to Talk to Girls" by 9 year old author, Alec Greven (and published by the wonderful people at Harper Collins!). Just to show you how adorable and charming this kid is, here is a clip of his interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

It's amazing that it all started from a school project!
I'm also thrilled to say I'll be illustrating 3 more books of keep an eye out! They're definitely nice books that not only kids, but adults should read.

I was so excited to receive the are some photos!

These are the earliest concepts I showed the publishers and editors at Harper Collins:

This is the final look they chose..

and some of my rough sketches..

I'm very happy about how the book turned out. HUGE thanks to the Harper Collins team for making a wonderful book! If you're interested in purchasing it, you can pre-order a copy at Harper Collins or Amazon. The book will be in stores on Nov. 25th.
