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.

Grass Roots Movement


When you have little resources available to you and need to promote a picture book that does not have a cover image to view.
What to do?
"Would A Kangaraffe Make You Laffe?"

is a picture book I illustrated and was published in June of 2009.
But to this day there is still no image of the cover on Amazon nor B&N (not sure why).

You can buy the book from them, you just have no idea what it looks like,
I'm sure in time it will be taken care of.
So I turned to one of the few resource available to me, my mom who works in real estate
and gave her about thirty copies of the book to say thank you to all her clientele who has kids. It is a slow process but I figure as long as the book is getting out there and the public can read it. It may have a chance to sell.

This note was given to me from one of the kids that my mom gave the book to.
It made me happy to read that someone was enjoying the book.

  1. Cover images won't fix themselves.If your publisher won't approach amazon to fix the problem, you can fix it youself. check https://authorcentral.amazon.com/gp/help?topicID=200399650 Your publisher will still need to get you a cover image that absoultely meets amazon's requirements, else it won't be approved. That is key. Otherwise you can email amazon to find out what the problem is with the image you supplied. Same sorta deal with b&n. You can email them corrections@barnesandnoble.com with your request to find out what their image requirements are and then send them what they need.
