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.
The full jacket and a few spolier-free interiors posted below.
Geeks, Girls, and Secret Identities is written by Mike Jung and published by Scholastic/ Levine. Available for purchase at booksellers everywhere and HERE.
