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.

four days after suffering a stroke.

Those who know me or have taken the time to read my past post know I have mentioned Mr. Sendak many times. He is an inspiration to me and a loss to the publishing world

He kind of looks like his character's
