This is an illustrations from my new book, "Let Freedom Sing."
Music is a very large part of my life. I am both a singer and musician.
Music is such a powerful tool for artist. It can move you in so many
ways. It can create a mood for a story or illustration. Yes, music even
has charms to soothe the savage beast of illustration and inspirational
blockages! So the very next time you feel artistic constipation with inspirational
irregularity, take two music laxatives and call me in the morning.
Tootles! he he he!
Have a good one People!

I just wanted to share a little bit about what I've been working on and what's on my desk.
I have been doing work for National Geographic under Hamilton-Brown Publishing. It's been
pretty busy around here too and I'm happy for that!!! This is a piece I did for a children's
Phonic's book. There are a few pieces that I have done that I hope to share later on.
I so enjoy doing work like this. Sometimes it's a crazy deadline in front of me,
but I do love what I get to do every single day and that is create! It's joy! How many people
can say that they get to do what they love and get paid for it too??? GOD IS GOOD! he he he!!
Well it's time to go back to work. So I will be checking in on Yall a little later during the week.
Keep your heads up!
Have a sweet one Yall!
