Throughout last year I Illustrated a fantastic book by author Mike Jung titled Geeks, Girls, and Secret Identities- and that book is officially out this week! Better yet, the book is receiving some wonderful reviews including this one from Publishers Weekly. BEST yet, that review gives a good breakdown of the book so I don’t have to type it here. But for those too busy/lazy to click and look, the gist is this: superhero fanclub, giant robot, school-yard crush, evil plot, exciting twist, lots-of-action.
I illustrated the jacket and 40 or so interior illustrations for GG&SI, most of wich consisted of drawing said giant robot, a beefy superhero, a goonies-esque trio, and one punky young gap-toothed girl. Oh and pizza. I also drew a bunch of pizza. It was a great gig. I know I’m biased but I can’t recommend the book highly enough. It’s just super fun.
Geeks, Girls, and Secret Identities is written by Mike Jung and published by Scholastic/ Levine. Available for purchase at booksellers everywhere and HERE.
