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.

2012 Tomie dePaola Award part 2


So they went along and went along until they met Turkey Lurkey “Good morning, Goosey Loosey, Ducky Daddles, Cocky Locky, Henny Penny, and Chicken Licken,” said Turkey Lurkey, “where are you going?” “Oh, Turkey Lurkey, the sky is falling and we are going to tell the King!” “How do you know the sky is falling?” asked Turkey Lurkey. “Ducky Daddles told me,” said Goosey Loosey. “Cocky Locky told me,” said Ducky Daddles. “Henny Penny told me,” said Cocky Locky. “Chicken Licken told me,” said Henny Penny “I saw it with my own eyes, I heard it with my own ears, and a piece of it fell on my tail!” said Chicken Licken. “Then I will go with you,” said Turkey Lurkey, “and we will tell the King!”

"You have the challenge, so now, and I’m repeating myself…
I want to be surprised, excited and – VERY jealous that I didn’t think of that way to illustrate it.
I want to see an image, a style, a vision that I’ve never seen before!
Good Luck.
I’m on your side!"


It was not the text that inspired me it was the note Mr. dePaolo wrote :
"I want to be surprised, excited and - Very jealous..."

Those simple words that took my image from this simple sketch to what it became.
