I have been traveling to a lot of schools, doing assemblies and doing murals. This year, I had the great opportunity to work with kids and teachers in New Tripoli, PA! I had the greatest time with all the kids and staff. I will be posting more about this on my Artist in Residence Page. Check it out!

Happy New Year, 2018! Let’s make it beautiful and fun!


Waiting to do some drawings for Read Aloud Revival!

See me on AMC Television!

As some of you may know, I hand paint sneakers for fun and profit. Recently, I was asked to paint a pair of sneakers for a commercial spot on AMC cable network television.

The premise of the commercial is art done by nationally recognized artists who also are fans of AMC shows. I was asked to do a pair based on THE WALKING DEAD which is one of my favorites.

Also…it was shown during the premiere of the new FEAR THE WALKING DEAD show as well as the special episode of THE TALKING DEAD. The new show broke all records for a cable show premiere at 10.1 million viewers! So, lots of folks got to see some fun fan based art from me and some other very talented people.

Tick, Tick, Tick…Time is FLYING BY!

Mystic_6x9Time is ticking down and the school year is nearer and nearer to its end. I hope all my friends have been having a great school year.

I have been fortunate to visit many great schools and meet some incredibly talented kids and teachers.

This week, I had the opportunity to participate in the Winchester Author Festival in Winchester, Ma. There were about 15 other authors/illustrators attending, doing great presentations at schools and later signing books at the Winchester Town Hall. It was a great day and the attendance at the town hall was fantastic! Thanks to all the kids, parents, grandparents, and teachers who came and spent the day and afternoon with all of us authors and illustrators.

I still have limited openings this Spring for school visits or conferences. If you or your school are interested in having me visit, please contact me. (see the CONTACT ME tab on the website menu)
