The project promotes the illustrators’ art in a unique way and gives them an opportunity to create a masterpiece together. It provides them a platform to give back to the community by expressing themselves and sharing their talent with the world.
Lewis Carroll created Wonderland, and the story surrounding it, out of his love of entertaining children. His story gained great success and 150 years later is still enjoyed by children all over the world.
We are here to drive forward Lewis Carroll’s idea of encouraging art and creativity among children. At 150Alice, all profits from this book will be donated to educating children in China and Mongolia about art and creativity. With your generous support, we can help a generation of children develop a more vivid imagination.
I would like to thank both Sig and Thomas for letting me work on such an important project.
Well, tomorrow is the big night! The Warwick Museum of Art is hosting an opening event for 15 children’s book illustrators and I am one of them! So happy…
I hope all of my readers can make it so they can get a sneak peak at the illustrations for “A Trashy Novel” They will be on display for the entire month of May so if you can’t make it for the opening tomorrow night then please visit the museum another day this month.
The address is: 3259 Post Road Warwick RI 02886
The opening event is Thursday May 10th from 6-8pm.
I look forward to seeing all of my friends there! Thanks for the support.
I am very excited to announce that I will be moving my art supplies, drawing board, painting table, and all of the stuff I use to create my books and illustrations to a public studio. My plan is to work there daily and I encourage everyone to come and visit me while I produce my next two books with illustrations. I will also be selling books from the studio along with prints of the illustrations. My paintings in progress can be viewed and prints will be for sale on those as well. I am so excited to be able to do this. I will post further details as the time nears and send out invitations to my entire mailing list. I am planning on having some activities and classes for children as well as planned school visits to the author’s studio. Please pass this information along to anyone you may know that would be interested in seeing what I have to offer. I will put out more information as the time nears.
As far as my novel goes, I am getting good reviews from my writer’s group. I haven’t any new drawings to post at this time because I have been getting ready for the studio. Please comment and leave any thoughts on me opening a public studio. I would love to hear your opinions.
Any artist will tell you there is no better place to be than the ZONE. This weekend I worked all sorts of hours and it felt like no time at all. I have been in the zone before but never this deep. Once out of it, I was confused and dazed. It was almost a scary feeling and if that is one of the side effects of deep zoning than I am willing to have more of it. Here are some of the pieces I created while in that zone. Tomorrow I will be adding the finishing touches on it and this piece called “The Ringmaster and his Prey” will be finished and in line behind the “Evil Clown” waiting to be hung in my new studio… I will announce more on that in the springtime. So many great things I have in store for my young readers this year!
