Boo!! Hope it’s sweet and scary!
Repeat client Yeamoonsa Bien House, an educational publishing house in South Korea, gave me this wacky and adorable story to illustrate. It’s about a restaurant run by animals, and the food is HORRIBLE. Nobody is happy. So, the staff go on a hunt for “The Best Chef”. Each applicant has his or her own specialty (unfortunately the silly quail’s specialty is worms – yuck!), and they all really want to help. In the end, of course the solution is teamwork, and the animals learn that, together, “We are all the BEST CHEF!”
To see more of my anthropomorphic animal art and some more appetizing food art as well, please check out my portfolio. Bon appetit!
This fun book I illustrated for Miles Kelly in the UK, The Elephant’s Child, by Rudyard Kipling, recently became available for purchase: Order The Elephant’s Child.
It’s a “Just So” story and tells the story of how the elephant got his super useful and stylish long trunk – previously he just had a fat little piggy nose, apparently! It was a treat to illustrate all the cute characters and the African scenery including the Great Grey Green Greasy Limpopo!
