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.

Michael Sporn was one of the giants of the New York animation community

I have dusted off the DVD's and sat back to watch films I worked on some twenty years ago
On Monday March 2nd I will be part of a panel decision  

 Michael Sporn was one of the giants of the New York animation community. From 1980 until his untimely death last year, Michael Sporn’s studio produced many acclaimed television specials, most of them animated entirely here in New York.
To commemorate the first anniversary of his passing, ASIFA-EAST is hosting an evening of Tribute to Michael Sporn–and we’re encouraging members of the animation community to contribute to a tribute reel to be presented at the event and preserved online.
ASIFA-East Tribute to Michael Sporn Monday, March 2, 2015 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm (doors open at 6:00 pm) SVA Theatre [Beatrice] 333 West 23rd Street (between 8th & 9th Ave.) New York, NY (no RSVP required).
Please join the others who knew him, worked with him, and read “Splog”–his celebrated blog to look back at his foot prints and keep his legacy alive for the future.

2015 SCBWI Winter Conference Portfolio Showcase

2015 SCBWI Winter Conference is upon us
and since the 2014 conference
 I spent most of my time hammering down my craft.
It was the year of the Penguins,
 It started out as a simple exercise that snowballed into
I don't know another word to describe it.
 I had fun creating them,
  I put them in different situations, places, and
turned subway riders into penguins as I sketched  them along my commute.
I truly found my voice.
I am so looking forward to share them with the Art Directors, Editors, and Agents who attend the  Portfolio Showcase this Friday night.
