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.

Ame Dyckman's words

On twitter I came across this:
"My firefly jar's Lid is gone. Woe betide it-- Scroll beside it: "I promise not To leave 'Til dawn." With a tiny flourish, Contract's on."
  by Ame Dyckman

It struck a nerve I needed to illustrate it.
So I did this sketch first.
 
 
I posted the sketch to show Ame she loved it.
 
I started to do more sketches and came up with this idea.
 
 
 
 
I add shadows using India ink, and washes of watercolor
 
 
More layers of watercolor.

 
And finally
the finished artwork
 
Thank you Ame
