It is fun to see the Book I illustrated titled 'An Unexpected Encounter' published by Crees. Crees is a non-profit organization that runs important conservation and sustainable community development initiatives in the Manu Biosphere Reserve. Their aim is to create a sustainable future for the Amazon rainforest through conservation research and community education.
The book follows the character of ABUN as she discovers many wonderful creatures in the rainforest and even encounters a new species of frog!
Here's a video of one of the illustrations in progress:
You can find more info about the book over at the Crees facebook page. Some of the book's proceeds will go to conservation of the rainforest.
