Red Nose Studio’s artwork can now be seen on new library cards for Hancock County Public Libraries in Chris’ hometown of Greenfield, IN. The sculpture featured in the illustration will also be part of the library’s permanent collection, encouraging patrons to reach new heights with books.

Chris says: “To me, a library card is a gateway to knowledge. I love walking through the library and stumbling upon subjects i would have otherwise never come across. It is like physically walking through the internet without any ads. Our little library also brings events to our community that would otherwise not have an outlet.”

RED NOSE STUDIO: ELVIS IS KING!

Elvis is King!, the newest picture-book illustrated by Red Nose Studio, was released on what would have been Elvis’ 84th birthday – January 8th, 2019. An extraordinary visual telling of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s rise to a technicolor life, the Schwartz & Wade Books title written by Jonah King has already received critical acclaim. Named one of “THE MOST EXCITING PICTURE BOOKS OF 2019” by Brightly, it was featured as the cover image for the December 2018 issue of The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books. Glowing reviews from BookList and Publishers Weekly Review, and starred reviews from Kirkus and Bulletin have been a thrill.

“A reprise collaboration between Winter and Red Nose Studio is indeed something to celebrate, and both author and illustration team are at peak performance in this sly, rollicking picture book bio of Elvis Presley and his rise from mic-shy blond tyke to teen dreamboat with product-infused raven hair who turned his stage-fright trembling into iconic sex appeal” - Bulletin

Elvis is King! features a special hidden cover and the book jacket highlights the process and low-tech materials used to create the book’s artwork. Visit Chris’ blog to see sketches and learn more about the illustrations in Elvis is King!, from re-creating Elvis’ signature dance moves to imagining the hardware store where Elvis got his first guitar.

RED NOSE STUDIO: The Secret Subway Trailer

RED NOSE STUDIO Trailer for The Secret Subway by Shana Corey, available March 8th, 2016 Published by Schwartz & Wade / Video editing by Dempsey Rice

From Chris' blog: “Absolutely wonderful in every way” – Kirkus, Starred Review New York City in the 1860s was a mess: crowded, disgusting, filled with garbage. You see, way back in 1860, there were no subways, just cobblestone streets. That is, until Eli Beach had the idea for a fan-powered train that would travel underground. Fifty-eight days of drilling and painting and plastering later, Beach unveiled his masterpiece on February 26, 1870 – and throngs of visitors took turns swooshing down the track. This true story by Shana Corey and a New York Times Best Illustrated artist, Chris Sickels, will wow readers just as Beach’s subway wowed riders over a century ago.

RED NOSE STUDIO for the Metropolitan Transportation AuthorityFrom Chris' blog: "Last fall, I was approached by the folks at MTA Arts & Design about the possibility of creating an art card for the subways. The art card project is a way for the MTA Arts & Design to give daily riders something to look at, among all the hustle, that hopefully makes the ride a bit more enjoyable… As we started talking about the project, they also asked if I would consider creating a 2 minute stop-motion animation that would run on the 52 screens throughout the Fulton Center."
