New art for Astronaut Academy bookmark featuring Doug Hiro.
Astronaut Academy fan art of Señor Panda by Dan Santat! Dan is the illustrator of several amazing picture books including “Oh No! (Or, How My Science Project Ruined The World)” and has a brilliant new graphic novel called “Sidekicks” that was released today. The easiest way to describe “Sidekicks” is to say it’s like Pixar’s “The Incredibles” with hilarious animal characters and beautifully rendered art. But there is also a lot of heart to the book and I think it’s going to be a huge hit!
