Children's Art #1

I hosted my fantastic nephews last week for their first Epic Sleep-over. As you can see, it involved an art project. I like to call these Rorschach Drawings - make a blob with watercolor, let it dry, and then interpret it with line. I find a lot to learn looking at my nephew's work. And I'll be the first to admit that my drawings look embarrassingly timid next to theirs. 

Drawing Midtown

Called Drawing Midtown, the show will feature location drawings of Midtown Harrisburg's many interesting buildings, streets and people. The Yellow Wall Gallery, October 16 - November 11, 2012.

Retroactive Post #2

I was very honored to have my book At Night selected as the WITF/Midtown Scholar pick of the month for August. For the festivities, I made a 3D illustration for the bookstore's display case and held a book reading and signing at The Little Scholar, Midtown's children's section. A sketchpad is essential equipment for readings and an interactive drawing the perfect way to gather the attention of kids. Afterward, I drew on demand, taking requests from children and giving them the drawing to take home.
