More praise for Skaffs

"Feldman's artwork blends the classic stylings of 1950s Disney with a modern design sensibility to create something both cutting edge and timeless."
- Cartoon Art Museum

"His lush, colorful dreamscapes appealed to adults as well, as he applied his skills in creating languid, vaguely Asian-looking women with large cat eyes set on heads shaped like lemon drops."
- Honolulu Star Bulletin

"Indeed, one might contend that Feldman is to digital art what Tim Burton is to cinema, or Dr. Seuss is to children's books, as each artist has a distinctive, unmistakable style."
- Skinnie Magazine

"…a picture book aimed at children aged 4-8, but Feldman's illustrations will ensure the book finds its way into older hands. Feldman is a well-known artist and animator on the California scene whose work appears on a variety of platforms, including decks and stickers and as vinyl toys. The story of a pretty girl, an unidentifiable faithful friend and a dapper lost mosquito is easy to follow, but the colourful, detailed illustrations are what makes this book a page-turner. Feldman makes mosquitoes seem almost tolerable."
- ArtMoCo

"Comicon fans, this one's for you. Or your kids. From skateboard and sneaker design to children's picture books, Australian artist Luke Feldman has created quite a cult following of his waif-like illustrated characters known as Skaffs. They hang in the Cartoon Art Museum, they delight hipster animation fans, and now they come to life in the vibrant children's book..."
- CoolMomPicks

"This is a modernistic and pleasing tale of courage and adventure. Mai, a young girl, helps a lost 'Moskivvy' find its way home, but not without some much needed encouragement that she receives from some good friends. It's definitely the vibrant illustrations that win me over and bring this dreamworld to life...I appreciate that Feldman and Chin play homage to Feldman's Australian heritage, by including some colloquial language and native animals. Chaff n' Skaffs: Mai and the Lost Moskivvy will have lift imaginations, and is certainly an alluring feast for the eyes."
- Children's Book Review

"A Dazzling Celebration of Childhood: ... A touching tale that teaches children the importance of family, friendship and love, the book is packed with vibrant, colourful illustrations and incredible creatures... As you follow the adventures of these three intrepid voyageurs, you can’t help but fall in love with the dazzling hues, exotic animals and intriguing storyline that splash the pages of this book. So celebrate the true meaning of being a kid, and order a copy of this gem of a book for the little ones in your family."
- Chic Today

"I first became a fan of Feldman's illustration when I saw his Pop Cling wall vinyls and then his toy prototypes at Comic Con. This book presents a whole new depth to his wonderful bold illustrations. Not only am I loving the main characters in the book- especially the super cute Chaff (check out that top hat!)- but the lush scenery and creatures in the backgrounds make the illustrations come to life. The story is one of compassion, courage and adventure, as a lost mosquito, Moskivvy, is helped back home with the help of his two new friends, Chaff and Mai."
- Tokyo Bunnie

"I’ve always been a fan of stories with female protagonists and Mai is definitely a gem...The message of exploration alone is enough to hand every single one of my students this book– there are going to be unknown territories ahead of them, and if they confront the unknown with courage, they can succeed at their mission...[Mai] is super kawaii... In addition to Mai, I really loved the numerous unnamed personalities that the trio meet throughout their adventures– the monks, lady bugs and spiders were too cute for words."
