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.

Reworking some ideas

 Good morning,
 It has been awhile. But for good reason  
 
 
At the 2013 ASIFA Awards I ran into an old college and as we talked of this and that I mentioned "Sidney & Friends" well he gave me an idea that sparked a new angle on this story.
 
 
 So I have been spending time working it out. It is not easy for me to let go of old ideas or drawings I have done. But I think it will be worth it when I put it all together; I also have not rushed it I've been taking my time letting my thought process work and see what happens.     
 
 
Hurray!

My Gal "G" of 15yrs old takes up more of my spare time as well she does not get around as well as she used to and it just takes more time for her to do anything  so it takes time from me to do anything,; that is okay It's all good

Publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt said in a statement Monday, May 20, 2013, that Waber died May 16 at his Long Island home after a long illness. He was 91. Waber debuted as an author in 1962 with "The House on East 88th Street." The book introduced readers to the lovable Lyle, first spotted in a bathtub in an Upper East Side brownstone. Lyle's story continued in "Lyle Finds His Mother," "Lyle and the Birthday Party." (AP Photo/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) NEW YORK (AP) Bernard Waber, the author of such children's favorites as "The House on East 88th Street" and "Lyle, Lyle Crocodile," has died. Waber died May 16 at his Long Island home after a long illness, publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced Monday. He was 91. Waber's "warmth, energy, artfulness, elegance, and abiding respect for children were epitomized in his books," Houghton's senior vice president and publisher of books for young readers, Betsy Groban, said in a statement. His 33 books have sold 1.75 million copies, the publishing company said. Waber debuted as an author in 1962 with "The House on East 88th Street," which introduced readers to the lovable Lyle, first spotted in a bathtub in an Upper East Side brownstone. Lyle's story continued in "Lyle Finds His Mother," ''Lyle and the Birthday Party" and other works. Waber also wrote many non-Lyle books, such as "Ira Sleeps Over," in which a boy fears he'll be teased for bringing a favorite stuffed teddy bear to a friend's house. Waber was a native of Philadelphia and a graduate of what was then known as the Philadelphia College of Art. He is survived by his brother, three children and four grandchildren. His final book, "Lyle Walks the Dog," was a 2010 collaboration with his daughter, Paulis.

It came to my attention yesterday That Bernard Waber past away at the age of 91.
I met Mr. Waber once at an HBO party, I was working for Michael
 Sporn Animation at the time and HBO threw a party for the screening of the adapted animated film "Lyle Lyle Crocodile".






I wish I spent time talking to Mr. Waber at the party. But I was young and did not take the opportunity. (Silly I know but that was then) click link to see old post LINK:

RIP
Mr. Waber
