Mike Byrnes and the Purim Superhero! Feb 08 2013


One of our freelance illustrators, Mike Byrnes, has been very busy with the release of a book he recently worked on for KarBen Publishing. 'The Purim Superhero' has been receiving glowing reviews on Amazon and on Kirkus Reviews. He's also featured in an interview with the author! The book is about the Jewish Holiday, Purim, and how young Nate wants to wear an alien costume for it. All his friends, however, are going dressed as superheroes and he wants to fit in, so what will he do? With the help of his two dads, he finds a surprising solution Mike's illustrations bring a vibrant, lively aesthetic to the book, and they sit beautifully with the message of moral tolerance and being yourself! Have a look at the cake Mike got at his 'The Purim Superhero' launch party, all credit to Keshet, who made the fantastic cake, and [email protected] who organized the party.
