Shelby's Collection Day, is the second book of the Shelby Centipede series. It's the story of a centipede in love with shoes, and with being kind. Although I didn't illustrate the very first book, I was careful to maintain the look of the already established characters, while infusing a little of my own style. Storyboarding was essential to keeping the artwork on time and in budget.

The author of this book series has partnered with Soles4Souls, an organization that donates shoes to peolpe in need, which is a perfect match for Shelby.
