My Octohug illustration has been published in a coloring book!
I am crazy honored to have my Octohug drawing nestled on a page near awesome illustrations by some of my favorite artists: Gary Baseman, Keith Haring, Kozyndan, Ryan Junell, Ryan McGinness, Saelee Oh, Shepard Fairey, Souther Salazar, and so many more!
For those who are unfamiliar with my history, Octohug was one of my first illustrations I had embroidered on baby onesies, and gocco printed on greeting cards when I launched my WilloToons product line in 2007!
I am so over the moon excited that this sweet illustration lives on in OTL, and will be colored by kiddos all over the land!!
