MIXED: A COLORFUL STORY 

 

Arree Chung's newest picture book is called MIXED: A COLORFUL STORY and it's due out at the beginning of July. It's a story of simple color theory, but it's also a story of what makes us the same and what makes us different. It's a story of mixing colors together, but it's also a story about new life and making the world more colorful. Arree (@arreechung) says that to make this story as relatable as possible, he had to make it as abstract as possible. I think the end result is nothing short of exceptional.

 

  

ABOUT THE BOOK: 

In the beginning, there were three colors . . .

 

Reds,

 

Yellows,

 

and Blues.

 

All special in their own ways, all living in harmony--until one day, a Red says "Reds are the best " and starts a color kerfuffle. When the colors decide to separate, is there anything that can change their minds?

 

A Yellow, a Blue, and a never-before-seen color might just save the day in this inspiring book about color, tolerance, and embracing differences.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Arree Chung makes picture books, but he did a lot of other things before finding his true passion. Arree began his career in consulting where he made lots of spreadsheets. Arree left the consulting field for an opportunity at Pixar. At Pixar, Arree learned the secret to success: loving what you do. To pursue his passion, Arree enrolled at the Art Center College of Design where he learned to draw, paint, and think differently. In Steven Turk's Children's Book Illustration class, Arree discovered his love for creating children's picture books and the rest is history!

 

In the past decade, Arree has worked in the games industry as a Designer and Art Director. Arree’s first debut picture book, “Ninja!” hits shelves June 3rd, 2014. When Arree is not practicing his Ninja moves, you can find him playing basketball or riding his bike..
