children's book illustrations

I had the opportunity to illustrate a Australia's children's book last year. It is called FANGS and it was released in January 9. Written by Aleesah Darlison. I did the illustrations and published by Pearson Education.

Fangs is the story of a young boy called Max, whose friend Ki asks him to come to her place to see her new pet. But Max is afraid of all animals....

Here is a sneak peak from FANGS.

A:TLA library poster

Happy New Year! I wish you all the best for this year.

This Avatar: The Last Airbender art is for a poster and bookmark that will promote reading in libraries. Aang and Katara based on the designs from "The Promise". Inside Wan Shi Tong's Library, the shelves of books appear to extend into infinity in the background.

My first sketch idea had Wan Shi Tong's Library's owl at the upper left hand. But since letter "Reading is mind-bending!" was print to the upper part of a poster, we had to take it off.
