An illustration course opened new doors for him and his first picture book, A Brave Soldier was published in 1999. Since then, he has illustrated several books for European and North American publishers and has twice been nominated for a Governor General’s Literary Award. His graphic novel, The Strongest Man in the World, won the 2007 Boston Globe Horn Book Award for children’s nonfiction.
