My friends at IC4DESIGN are proud and excited to announce the release of their much anticipated book, Pierre the Maze Detective! Kamigaki-san and his team have illustrated an absolutely beautiful children's book full of intricate maze drawings. The book challenges the reader to help Pierre, the detective, and Carmen, his assistant, track the villain, Mr. X, through a series of mazes to solve the crime. The illustrations are so detailed, full of creative touches, and just downright charming. Chasing Mr. X takes you through a museum, a hot air balloon festival, a tree house city, a harbor crowded with boats, even a cave deep underground. I know it's a book I would have loved as a kid, and kids and adults alike can appreciate and enjoy the beautiful illustrations. The Japanese edition of the book was released this past week and is available throughout Japan and online here and on Amazon. The English version will be out next spring -- I'll keep you posted when it comes out!
I had the pleasure of helping with the negotiations between the British publisher and IC4DESIGN. I am so honored that Kamigaki-san was kind enough to draw me, Brad, and Harley into the book! Look at retro-aviator Brad! LOVE it! They even included my name on the "Special Thanks" page! You guys are amazing!
