The Art of Crayons Has Hit the Bookstands!

It’s finally time to announce the launch of my book:

 The Art of Crayon!

It has been a long time in the making, but I couldn’t be happier to share that  The Art of Crayon is now available in bookstores and online in several countries.

The Art of Crayon expands on the latest crayon craze by showing you how artists have taken the humble crayon to new and greater heights!

“What is it about crayons that’s so appealing? Why do they still whisper, ‘play with me,’ with a hint of waxy breath when we catch a glimpse of them in an open box?
