Animation/illustration artist Louis Thomas appears at Gallery Nucleus on Saturday, February 18th at 6:00 PM. Louis will be signing his latest book Hug It Out, and talk to fans.
About the book:
Mom has had enough of Woody and Annie’s incessant fighting. When her pleas for sharing and apologizing are ignored, she demands they “hug it out.” At first, the warring siblings are confused. Hugging? But after a long afternoon of forced embraces, the brother and sister decide to call a truce to avoid yet another icky hug. However it doesn’t take long for them to miss that newfound closeness. And soon they’re looking for something to fight about so they can hug it out once more!
Adults will delight in a new solution to conflict, while kids will enjoy yelling “HUG IT OUT!” at each familiar situation. With subversive humor and smart, eye-catching illustrations, Louis Thomas’s debut is a cheeky tribute to sibling rivalry and (cuddly) compromise.
About the artist:
Louis Thomas is based in Paris, France. He graduated from CalArts and Gobelins then worked full-time in California for several animation studios such as Pixar and Cartoon Network. He then returned to France and started showing work in galleries and illustrating children’s books.
