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.

Snow White in the making

I am coming to the end of reworking my
Snow White illustrations.
I wanted to share some of the artwork,
it's not complete and the photos are poor but that will make the finish artwork even more exciting! :D
I decided on a rabbit for the Huntsman,   
"Run away, then, you poor child." Said the Huntsman to Snow White
"The wild beasts will soon have devoured you,"
I made a conscious decision not to make the wild beast anthropomorphize
like I did with Snow White and the Huntsman.   
I was not %100 sure if I was going to redo the original artwork I thought about it during the SCBWI winter conference. But it was not until MOLES! popped into my head while I was at work
 "Moles could be Dwarfs"; this could work.

Don't eat that apple!

 well the rest has been a labor of love,
I'm working on six pages that will be joined together to create three spreads 
 I'll scan them into my computer and do the finishing touchups in Photoshop.  
I'm waiting on a new Epson scanner/printer that should improve the quality of the watercolor reproductions.
I also have been enjoying inking with a brush and a jar of ink.
This was another new thing for me Brush Pens are not cheep a jar of ink and a good brush cost about the same as three of the pens and the pens don't last too long while using them on watercolor paper. the brush seems to hold up just fine and I have a little more play in my line.
