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.

Well sometime this week is my birthday and I thought I would share some birthday cards that were made for me by other talented artist who I
worked with over the years at

we would create cards for each others birthday I can only find three that was made for me 

This one I made for my friend
Michael in 2011 for his birthday it was a fun party.
This card gave me the idea to share what others created for

Made for me during the making of
"Poky Little Puppy's First Christmas",
This maybe the artwork of Jason McDonald

Almost to the year

?1995/6 - May 14 2011

Almost to the year, (click here)
I would like to take a moment to thank the staff of the NYC Veterinary Hospital of Queens, NY for taken such good care of Hamlet in the last few hours of his life. they are an incredible group of people and I'm very thankful I have them in my neighborhood.

Doubt thou the stars are fire,
Doubt that the sun doth move,
Doubt truth to be a liar,
But never doubt I love.
Act III, Scene II

Well May sucked! and I am thankful it is over. One thing to beware of is this lovely virus that attacked my computer with a wrecking ball. It was a big hit with me, and im feeling a little stupid because I hit "FIX" (don't hit "FIX")

I thought I got rid of it two or three days before it reappeared and well my computer is now running on two cylinders instead of eight; I'm almost confident I killed it this time. But I am not going to attempt to repair all the damage it has caused. I don't have the disc to rebuild my favorite program and I was going to start looking for a new system anyway since this one is 5-6 years old. So I have this one running well enough to check emails and checkout websites (for a new computer)

Good news!
 "G" is now walking up the ramp instead of jumping to the top of it. Just think it took only thirteen years to convince her it is not evil and it would be okay to walk up it she never had a problem walking down it.
