He works by day as a visual development artist on feature animated films and by night as a picture book illustrator. Joey is the creator of several format-driven and novelty series, including Nosy Crow's MAKE AND PLAY series (8 titles) and Scholastic's TEENY TINY series (4 titles). His 12 LUCKY ANIMALS board book is an Amazon bestseller and ranked #1 in their 'Children's Chinese Language Books' category. Joey has illustrated six Little Golden Books authored by Mallory Loehr; I'M A UNICORN has sold more than 635,000 copies to date.
