RubinPingkAuthorRubin Pingk is an author/illustrator living the small town life in Clinton, Utah with his wife, two rowdy boys, a peckish pug and a scheming cat.

With two growing boys, Rubin tells a lot of bedtime stories and draws a lot of heroes, dragons, robots, ninjas, video game characters and, every once in awhile, a princess or two.

This makes Rubin a natural story generator.

Rubin’s illustrations are eclectic. He believes every story-world deserves its own quirks, style and flavor. To this end, Rubin dabbles in an assortment of illustrative styles.

Rubin’s illustrations can be categorized under two labels . “Crimson” is a graphic novel style for young adult  and adult readers, while “Licorice” is a playful style for picture books and little readers.

Rubin is the author of the Christmas book, Samurai Santa: A Very Ninja Christmas (Simon & Schuster 2015) and is currently working on his  second picture book at Simon & Schuster.

Rubin can be found tweeting art and other nonsense on Twitter and hanging his art on Facebook’s hallowed walls.

Rubin is represented by Carrie Hannigan at HSG Literary Agency.
