Wild Kratts!

A few years ago I got an amazing opportunity to work for a couple of amazing guys, Chris and Martin Kratt, The Kratt Brothers! Famous world wide for their hit Zoboomafoo, as well as Kratt's Creatures, these guys hired me to help design the characters for their new animated show, "Wild Kratts". The show airs now on PBS and you can check out lots of clips and cool things on their website:

    Absolutely in love with your animals.
    Your palette, your face expressions, your slightly straight lines.
    I also remind Charley Harper seeing your drawings.
    Magnific work!

    Your illustrations are incredible -- you've not only provided the art, but have given them character and personality. Thank you, so much, for your part in encouraging enthusiasm and passion in our children towards the world's wildlife.

    My son LOVES watching Wild Kratts and my husband and I enjoy watching it with him!

    With much appreciation for your amazing work,
