An interesting solution to a recurring problem encountered by art directors.
Monika was asked by New Jersey Monthly to contribute her expressive narrative style, to a serious issue around social ostracizing and bullying in NJ.

After much praise for his illustrations in Duped!, Rémy Simard was asked by Colleen MacMillan, Associate Publisher at Annick Press, to illustrate their next book entitled Robbers!. Robbers!, the second book in the graphic novel series for young adults, was art directed by Antonia Banyard. Author Andreas Schroeder, the “resident Scam-meister” on the former popular CBC Radio show Basic Black, spent twelve years reporting on ingenious frauds, swindles, and hoaxes committed around the world. He continues this fascination with a series of books.
Annick says: "Each story (in 'Robbers!') offers a glimpse into the high-octane underworld of the boldest of robbers. The writer’s fascination with criminal masterminds and the illustrator’s action-packed graphic depictions of real-life thievery make this a compelling read for fans of mischief, mayhem, and bad guys on the run."
'Robbers!' hit book stores this month, but why leave the comfort of your computer? - click here to pick up your copy today!
