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.

Society of Illustrators: "The Art of Harvey Kurtzman

Society of Illustrators:

March 06, 2013 - May 11, 2013
One of the things I love about living in NYC is I can walk over to
 The Society of Illustrators between jobs and look at a wide variety of artist exhibits.
So I was thrilled that I stopped by yesterday and saw this poster of what is going on behind the red door.

When I was back at SVA Mr. Kurtzman was one of my teachers; it was not one of my stronger classes. The class was how to draw humor in comics I did not do well; at the time I saw very little humor in my artwork and had a hard time making it funny, I feel Mr. Kurtzman and I did not connect so I struggled with the class; funny now I see it in my artwork time, life, and experience is something he could not teach me.

But I do enjoy looking at his artwork.
If it is one of the many collaborations with Will Elder or his alone he has a wonderful line and was a great story teller.
The image is of the comic strip
”Little Annie Fanny”
done for Playboy it was an extra bonus to see how Will Elder worked.
In the exhibit you can see other pages from this story.
