I write and draw books for children. I also created Disney's animated show, The Replacements.

Youngest boy with Silver Surfer #sdcc14

Hung out with @scottlava and @grickle last night at the Scholastic party. Good times were had

With the guys from #WelcometoNightVale

Amazed to get this sketch from artist, Kim Jung Gi. Type his name in YouTube and you’ll understand why I think he’s so super humanly talented #sdcc14

Art from the Fizz!Boom!Read! Campaign you might see at your local library. I’m off to Comic Con. The Annual Running of the Nerds has begun

Powell’s Books has been incredibly kind to my book. Please support their store! 

I was recently invited to be part of the stellar line-up of cartoonists to celebrate Gene Luen Yang and Sonny Liew’s new graphic novel from First Second, THE SHADOW HERO. I’ve been a fan of both these guys for years. I’ve admired Gene’s work ever since the publication of his stellar book, American Born Chinese, and up to his most recent, Boxers & Saints. I remember seeing Sonny’s work for the first time in an edition of the Flight Anthology and I have followed him ever since. 

Imagine a story about a slightly overbearing Asian mother pushing his kid to become a superhero instead of a doctor and you get The Green Turtle. Listen to Gene talk about the book on NPR’S Morning Edition 

Well, this is cool. The Denver Comic Con read #Beekle over a video montage of comic goers and made something beautiful: The Adventures of Beekle at Denver Comic Con 2014

Just finished #ElDeafo by @cecebell “Outstanding and highly recommended.” #camping

I’m so happy to witness a friend accept his Caldecott Medal @brianfloca
