The Goal of the Book
Picky eaters are young children that, for one reason or another, refuse to eat the healthy meals that their parents prepare for them. Over a year and a half, I researched and developed a children’s storybook to help young kids become healthier eaters. Picky Nicky: The Nutrition Decision. Kids, You Are What You Eat embeds the lessons into the story so children can absorb them while being entertained by hilarious cartoons.

Who is Reading Picky Nicky?
My name is Chris Silvestre and I am dedicating my life to connecting to people through visual storytelling; the world’s most potent form of communication. I tell stories that inspire, educate, motivate, and entertain through Cartoons, Illustrations, Books, Blogging, and Animation.
Growing up in Eatontown, NJ, I spent a lot of school time drawing cartoons of my classmates and teachers. I graduated from Cartoon College, The Art Institute of Philadelphia, where I studied hand drawn and 3D animation. I began drawing caricatures at the local theme park. I then moved on to draw and render graphics and animation for training software. During this time I animated personal projects and I landed my first full time job as an animator for iCaramba Communications working on the first Latino Animated cartoon “La Familia”. To become a more well rounded artist, I always varied the industries I have worked in. I have worked as Interactive Art Director in the Advertising Industry and I’ve also built and managed teams to develop training software for the medical device industry as well as for a Global Educational Testing company.
For 20 years, I have been creating cartoon character animation for my fans and for a variety of clients. Whether it’s a real person or a fictional character I use everything in my arsenal to bring these stories to life.
I draw live Caricatures under my company Party Cartoon. As an entertainment artist, I draw cartoons of party guests LIVE while the crowd watches.
