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.

POE again

Five years ago it was told to me by Michael Sporn
“I am making Edgar Allan Poe into a 90minute animated movie”. “I am looking for bakers and so on….” I was told over the years that one person or another was going to back this project; if anyone has tried to raise money for any type of project, you would know it is hard. Even for Michael who is well respected in the industry. For reasons I don’t know it never happened recession scares must have played a large part.  I know people losing their jobs hurt my work load no one was or is bullet proof with this mess we are in.
  



Some of you may have read older post of mine; so you know I worked with Michael for many years and think of him as a good friend. So when Mr. Sporn posted on his “Splog” (blog) about trying to raise money using Kickstarter I thought it was a great idea. I myself have put in my two cents to help get this project started, and have re posted it on my as well as some of my friends Facebook pages, also on other social networks including joining Twitter (let’s see how that goes).
The pencils in the picture are relics from the past when I worked at the studio. You can see the tooth marks I made, why? I don’t know but there they are .
