Shark Kiss, Octopus Hug by Lynn Rowe Reed is story of two sea creatures who will do anything for a little affection. Like that Kraken in Clash of the Titans. You know, his dates would have been a lot more successful if he took them to, instead of eating them for, dinner.
Early on in the concept phase, I explored a drastically different style than the look the final art took on. Every now and then I think it'd be fun to go back and realize some of those rough spreads in color.
If you've got a little one you'd like to give a hug and kiss, get a copy of Shark Kiss, Octopus Hug for yourself! Or, if you're more from the “firm handshake and lecture about responsibility” school of parenting, visit your local library for some of Herbert Hoover's early fiction.
Kevin Cornell spends his days in Philadelphia, drawing made-up things. You know… like a “dog driving a bus”, or a “talking can of beets”. If you ever see a talking can of beets, tell Kevin. He's been trying to figure that one out for years.
If you have a book you want Kevin to illustrate, please get in touch with his agent, the distinguished Steve Malk. If you wish to contact Kevin because he's behind on his payments and you need to know where to send the next toe… hmmm… send that to his agent, too.
