Wow.... The eyes... I have seen this photograph before. The eyes always strike me. Your detail is magnificent! It is very humbling.

Charity,
I feel that I have to tell you the story. I was, maybe, 20; I had spent my teen years in foster care, so having the money for art college wasn't a reality for me. I did barber school instead, but I made more money selling drawings out of my booth than I did doing hair! So I applied for S.C.A.D and was accepted, but I needed a portfolio to show. I didn't have one, so I went and borrowed a photo book from the library and spent a week drawing pictures from the book. This and many of the others drawings at the end of my portfolio were from that time...27 years ago. I did get the scholarship, but still couldn't afford the school; it was a partial scholarship. A year later I moved to N.Y. and gave it my best!

Thank you. It's a new direction for me: retro inspired nursery rhymes. I'm hoping to start a new project using them.
