Cityblock explores city life in an exciting and unique way, from up in a high-rise building to down in the subway. Divided into three sections—things that go, things to see, and things to eat—it features 24 different aspects of city living. As with the other acclaimed books in the series, die-cut icons hint at the larger context on the next spread. Each section opens with a full city scene but gradually focuses in on the small, unique neighborhoods that make the city large and grand. This clever book will attract young readers living in a metropolis as well as those in the countryside with urban life that pops off each page.

As part of Peski Studio (formerly Peskimo) he enjoys screen printing, a process which often informs his approach to illustration.

He especially enjoys creating characters, drawing friendly robots, and sending them on incredible adventures.
