For those of you that don't know me, I work at
FableVision Studios in Boston, MA. For the last two years, I have been LIVING in Zebrafishland because not only is this a book...it's an animated series, it's an online comic, it's a series of games, it's an initiative to raise money to help sick kids through Generation Cures at Children's Hospital Boston.

More to come, but probably not until the book comes out. I'll be able to show some more in process art then... which is, for me, where all the magic happened. :) Rock!
