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.

Maurice Sendak & The Giving Meadow


At The Morgan Library was an exhibit of Maurice Sendak original artwork from his picture book "Where The Wild Things Are" this was at the same time the movie version was in theaters.
It was a great treat for me because I am such a fan of his work. The show had selected original pieces from the book also sketches and some of his writings. the only thing separating me from the artwork was a piece of glass I just stood there and looked, I let other people walk past me and drank it all in it was great!
I was working on the illustrations for "The Giving Meadow" I was inspired!
What an affect that show had on me, it comes across in the artwork I did for the book.
Thank you
Mr. Sendak
