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.

Humpty Dumpty was Pushed!

It's a couple days after Easter and I thought it would be a good time to write about a certain nursery rhyme.
On my home page a question popped up: Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is a egg?
Silly question of course it say its an egg;

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

Hm mm?
I thought it said it.
Well as you can read it doesn't so According to Wikipedia Humpty Dumpty may of started out as an riddle by the time the 1800's come along the answer is already known to us Wikipedia also have other theory's on humpty dumpty one that sounds good was about a battle in 1643
(the title comes from a book by Mark Blatte about a murder that has taken place in a NYC hip hop club)
