Twisted Critters

Book design and illustration

"Twisted Critters" is a new take on the age-old pastime of sculpting pipe cleaner animals. Children's book publisher Klutz sourced some sweet custom pipe cleaners and packaged them with instructions for hand-twisting 20 fuzzy creations. (My favorite: the Mighty Moose finger puppet.) I designed the cover title treatment, interior pages and mastered Photoshop's "find edges" tool during the course of this project. Winner of an Award of Excellence from Noise on Toys.

"We are very pleased with how the book turned out. Your accent graphics and backgrounds were a perfect match for the content of the book. Plus your type treatments were kid-friendly, fun and colorful. It looked like you had an enjoyable time working on those. I also loved the layers and textures that you used throughout the book… You rock!"
