Photographic progress post. This little guy is from a story I am working on. I had previously created a color piece but wasn't thrilled with it. So, I decided to try again on hot press paper….
The awesomely talented (and incredibly patient) Tina Kugler
who illustrated the charming "The Change Your Name Store"
tagged me to answer a few questions. Go check out her site. I can't wait for In Mary's Garden!
What I'm currently working on:
I have 3 stories is different stages of production. Hopefully more work on that soon. 😉
How does my work differ from others?
It's an expression of myself. Just as I am unique in my looks, upbringing, current values, and craving for sushi and tex-mex, hopefully my art is different in its execution, process and final result. It's about all the different parts that make the final result. I know many artists who combine watercolor and photoshop but each has a unique "feel" to it. That's what Art with a capital A is about, right? Expression through Individuality?
Why do I write what I write?
I write what captures my interest and holds it, it has to make me smile. I like twists on old stories and places and things I wanted to do as a child.
I just received my prints back from the Appleton exhibit "Sendak & Co" that featured prints from "Maya was Grumpy". To celebrate the exhibit and other Maya good news, I'm giving away a high quality giclee print that was part of the exhibit!
These are from a limited print run done by a fabulous local company and are printed on watercolor paper.
