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.

My Brother is a Polar Bear (part # whatever)

opinions welcome
 
So I have been taken the time to create model sheets for an idea  I am working on.
I am enjoying this approach it allows me to play with the idea without committing 100% to finished artwork.
In the past I have gotten excited about an idea for a picture book start doing finished art before I have a solid foundation for the story, then I am trying to fit the finished artwork in and it does not always work so well leaving me frustrated and then putting the idea aside for a long time .
The model sheets also gives me a chance to enjoy playing with watercolor with out commitment to a set of colors.
It is a beautiful thing!
