illustration

I’m “drawn” to illustration (sorry-not sorry!). My first exposure to art was picture books and I was born around the time of “the golden age” of children’s book illustration: Robert McCloskey, Ludwig Bemelmans, Ernest Shepherd, Virginia Lee Burton. Wonderful stuff!

And I was brought up with The New Yorker – whose illustrated covers were almost always stories, and very often stories with a wink attached.

So I realized (later) all that came into play when I got the idea for this: a mash-up of a photo of a Swedish girl and her fuzzy dog, and an Edward Hicks ‘Peaceable Kingdom’ poster that has hung in my home for 30+ years.

(not quite done . . .)
