Happy Women's Day / Mother's Day  

From Tomie

Thinking of Tomie dePaola 
Miss you Tomie!!

2017 from Tomie:
What a very nice surprise when I turned over this illustration and recognized Stephen’s name. I remembered his work from previous assignments, and we’ve met at the New York Conference.
In his piece, he’s taken his sketchy line and colored wash to a new level especially in his self-portrait. The mood, the body language and the hidden face are very moving to the viewer.
Again, I “want” to know more: What’s going on, can I help? I’m interested!
Again, a small critique. I wish more care was taken with the background and the left front of the image. I read “shirts – maybe” for the background, but still, “What is that on the bottom left?”
Great job, Stephen. Keep it up. You’re on to something.
