His work has been exhibited around the world including in the Times Best Illustrations of the Past 20 Years exhibit at the Society of Illustrators. His ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs’ has been selected one of the NY Times Ten Best Illustrated Books and sold over six million copies and was made into two motion pictures.
