Each time I take on a commission I try to look back at works and artists I have admired over the years to draw inspiration from. Hans Holbein’s woodcuts have become something I cannot live without. So thank you Hans for the work and for letting me use this composition–I’m sure you won’t mind very much.

From time to time I feel as though I need to create my creatures not only on paper or in words but in 3D…and fuzzy. So I purchase some cloth and cotton and go to work. They are usually stitched with all the cunning and craft exhibited by Dr. Victor Frankenstein–I’m ok with that. I rather like my crude, zombie dolls……and so do the kiddies.
These critters are actually from a ms I just sent in to my publisher….hopefully more to come.
I did a school visit on Tuesday morning in Danbury, CT to a large class of 7 and 8 year old kids. I was kindly given all of these great drrawings by the kids–some of Honey Badgers!
