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.

My new start part 1

I decided to give a glimpse of some of my past work and instead of cramming into one post I'll brake it up into as many as needed.
Buy the end of 2003 my life was changing for the better. Certain goals were met and I was starting to think on whats next?
At my niece birthday party at a family type restaurant I was sitting with my father & mother waiting for my brother & his wife and the two kids to arrive. We all seemed to forget a card how this happened I don't know. But what is a birthday without a card? I took the paper place mat grabbed the crayons off the table and but together a card for the three of us to sign.
My father suggested maybe I should try greeting cards. The idea of art was already on my mind and it stayed there a little longer until a friend & coworker was talking to me about stories he had written and wanted them illustrated for kids, well as you can guess I reminded him I went to school for this kind of stuff and maybe we should get together and talk.

He told me once he did some rewriting we would get together. But it was ten years since I did any thing seriously and it took me time to get back into the grove. My Avatar was one of my fist success. I went out bought some paper,brushes and other goodies and started working. I love Fairytale, magic, dragons, and so on. I started using them in my work. This illustration was one of the earlier success I had to relearn patience and in art it is needed I was working in pen & ink with watercolor as I post some more illustrations over time you will see that I become more involved with the work, adding more texture. It took a year for the meeting to take place but that will be for another time.
