“Illustrators, lets do it again. We’re looking for an illustrator who can draw awesome, quasi-retro robots for a fun book. Let me know.” -Giuseppe Castellano ( @pinocastellano )

Responding to this tweet was what started my adventure into the picture book world and ended with one of my favorite illustration projects of all time: the Robot Workshop activity book with Penguin Publishing.

There simply aren't enough words to express how thankful I am to have been able to contribute to this one. Working on a book which allows kids to draw on the pages was so much fun for me. My goal was to try and squeeze in as much detail as I could so kids would have fun getting lost in and drawing on top of this world. I hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

My deepest thanks to Giuseppe Castellano. It was a dream come true working with him, and I hope lightning strikes twice and we get to do it again!

Now, onto the art!
