Derek May, the founder and curator of the Drawing Dreams Foundation invited me to donate two of my fine art prints for the Charity Buzz auction. The proceeds of the sale go toward art supplies for children who are hospital bound. The Drawing Dreams website features the work of some of my favorite artists and illustrators, alongside work by very talented child artists.
One of my prints is an image of a man with a small cat perched on his shoulder, in bright graphic colors and dark silhouettes.
The second print, "kid plane" was influenced by child-like images I was creating when my son was little. Kid plane is a friendly hero who would come and save the animals and little children whenever they found themselves in a jam, much like "the little engine that could". They would hop on board and be whisked to a place where everything is happy and safe. "Kid plane" bears the scars of battle on his wings and tail, because he shields his friends from danger. He always pulls through with a smile.
