About this title

Synopsis:

What’s a persnickle? And why is it floofing? Shouldn't it be flurfing, blurfing, or slurfing? This book celebrates all sorts of silly, nonsensical stuff. And it gives you the keys you’ll need to unlock your own poems. So open up, and discover the poet in you!

My name is Dustin Burkes-Larrañaga, I am an illustrator and character/environment/concept designer. My BFA is in Illustration from CSU Long Beach. For as long as I can remember, I have been chasing down the dream of becoming a professional illustrator. Art is my driving force, and I am constantly propelled by imagination and creativity. I love creating new faces, places, worlds, creatures, and ideas. I consistently strive to create characters that pop off the screen, and environments that transport the viewer into new worlds. I am always an avid student and practitioner of the arts, and I feel like there is never enough to learn. I am just as confident working digitally as I am with many formal forms of art including: pencil/charcoal, pen/ink, watercolor/gouache, oils/acrylic paints, colored pencils. If I'm not in my studio working on art, I can be found doodling on napkins at a coffee shop.
