About the artist: Kickliy is the creator of the critically acclaimed Musnet series of books. Musnet was nominated for the 2017 Prix Angouleme for Kids Comics. Kickliy is also an accomplished oil painter. He lives somewhere between Minneapolis and Giverny.

About Musnet: Springtime. Giverny, France. Mid 1800’s. A young boy mouse travels the country side looking for work and happens upon Monet’s garden. He takes on a job and becomes inspired to learn to paint. Will he paint in the classical ways, or in the new style of the impressionist? Which way will his brush sway?

Set in the midst of one of the great moments in the history of art, Musnet is a coming of age story for the young aspiring artist. Kickliy’s fluid ink and watercolors evoke the magic of the period and the country setting for the story. The paintings of Musnet and Monet, are actually mini-oil paintings within the story.

Kickliy's book signing and sketching will be taking placing during Seward's annual art crawl and Winter Frolic, which takes place Dec 1-3. Seward neighborhood businesses will be offering specials and local artists will display their work at several venues.
