First Picture Book

This fall and winter I'll be hard at work at my first picture book, produced by Charlesbridge Publishing and written by Barry Wittenstein. There's a little blurb about it here on the Rights Report at Publisher's Weekly. The work will run alongside my duties on Archer, where we're working on what hopefully you'll find to be a visually stunning Season 8. Season 7 won the Emmy for "outstanding animated program" and of course the team is hoping to do it again for Season 8. It's going to be a busy winter but I'm up for the challenge.

"Karen Boss at Charlesbridge has bought world rights for Barry Wittenstein's (l.) The Boo-Boos That Changed the World: A True Story About an Accidental Invention (Really!), a humorous take on the story of how Earle Dickson invented the Band-Aid. This is illustrator Chris Hsu's debut picture book. Publication is set for spring 2018; the author and illustrator represented themselves."

Also this past spring I painted backgrounds for an Adult Swim pilot with Bento Box, the link is here. Once there click the "Now Showing" tab up top and select "Bad Guys" from the menu. (Created by Paul Scheer and Nick Giovanetti, starring the voice talents of Keegan-Michael Key, Scheer, Chelsea Peretti, Jason Mantzoukas, June Diane Raphael, Andy Daly, and James Adomian.)
