"Marcel the Shell With Shoes On" - My first time illustrating a Children's Book!

I'm SOOO excited to finally announce what I've been working on for the last few months...  The incredibly cute and hilarious "Marcel the Shell With Shoes On" (as seen in this 3 1/2 minute YouTube video) can now engage with you via a children's book thanks to Penguin Books.  Genius Co-Creators and Writers Dean Fleischer-Camp and Jenny Slate (of Saturday Night Live fame) birthed the most lovable little shell, and it was my absolute honor and pleasure to take part in bringing him to life through oil paintings for the book.

It will be released in stores November 1, and is available for pre-order online now.  Before the book comes out, I URGE you to take a few minutes to watch the amazing video that the book is based on.  It is an award winning, simply adorable video that will have you in stitches, I promise!

Also, a huge thank you to Emily Osborne, the fabulous graphic designer who I worked closest with on this project!
