KLAWDE: Evil Alien Warlord Cat

I’m proud to share the news that the middle-grade book series I’ve been illustrating this past year is finally hitting the shelves on February 26th! I’ve been working with Penguin Workshop on the super fun series, Klawde: Evil Alien Warlord Cat written by the talented Johnny Marciano and Emily Chenoweth. This is my first middle grade series and something I have always wanted to work on.

"Applaud for KLAWDE. Two paws up!"--Dav Pilkey, creator of the Dog Man series.

"Funny, savage, and brilliant, Klawde is the pet I wish I had."--Max Brallier, author of the New York Times Best Seller The Last Kids on Earth

Klawde is not your average cat. He's an emperor from another planet, exiled to Earth. He's cruel. He's cunning. He's brilliant... and he's about to become Raj Banerjee's best friend. Whether he likes it or not.


Klawde had everything. Sharp claws. Fine fur. And, being the High Commander of the planet Lyttyrboks, an entire world of warlike cats at his command. But when he is stripped of his feline throne, he is sentenced to the worst possible punishment: exile to a small planet in a quiet corner of the universe... named Earth. 

Raj had everything. A cool apartment in Brooklyn. Three friends who lived in his building. And pizza and comics within walking distance. But when his mom gets a job in Elba, Oregon, and he is forced to move, all of that changes. It's now the beginning of summer, he has no friends, and because of his mother's urgings, he has joined a nature camp.

It's only when his doorbell rings and he meets a furball of a cat that Raj begins to think maybe his luck is turning around...

Merry Christmas 2017!

Going with the theme of Charles Dicken's classic holiday tale,  "A Christmas Carol". I put my kids in the role of Ebenezer Scrooge and Jacob Marley for my 2017 Christmas card. Happy Holidays!




Three Christmas Spirits

I'm a huge fan of Charles Dicken's classic holiday tale,  "A Christmas Carol". I had to put these guys in my Christmas card this year. They are so much fun to draw.
