Books I worked on

About Me

My Photo
A little about my artwork: I interpret the words written on a page by telling the story behind the story working with pen and ink, watercolor and Photoshop, I fuse old techniques with modern ones to create a world that every drawing can speak to a child or grownups.

Retiring an old friend

Retiring an old friend
I have been using this image since 2008 and I figure its had a great run.
So slowly I have been removing it from my sites and putting up this new one
 
 
It does not have the same emotional meaning for me.
"Sleeping Under the Moon"
 is a portrait of my dog Hamlet who past away some three years ago.
"Homework"
is an idea I have for a picture book nothing more and I also like the bright yellow pulls your eye's to my artwork
 (I think)

Why I love my new Epson all in one





HP Scanner

Epson scanner
Just sharing the difference between my old HP All in One and my new Epson all in one printer scanner.
 
The difference is nights and day. last year I started to work with watercolor again and presented it in my portfolio at the SCBWI Winter Conference.
 I was not happy with the scans I felt they just did not hold up well.
 At the conference I was talking to another attendee and he recommended an Epson;
 I am so happy with this model its just insane!
 Look at the difference in the two scans, I still need to clean it up. But the Yellows are YELLOW! not blah yellow.

Finished Artwork for Snow White

The illustrations are based on the text from "The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales"
"Little Snow -White"
 
 
The huntsman had pity on her and said: “Run Away, then you poor child.” “The wild beasts will soon have devoured you”,
“Are you afraid of poison?”  Said the old woman
 
The dwarfs found Snow White dead
