COOL NEWS! Check out my author’s interview on Kidlio Magazine’s March edition, www.kidliomag.com. Find out more info about Darby Gator’s Magical Space Dream and what inspired the story.
I wasn’t wasting time during this pandemic. I managed to write, design, and self-publish a children’s book titled Darby Gator’s Magical Space Dream. Terri Berman created the illustrations. It’s a story of a little gator with a big dream of discovering an unoccupied planet. Along the way, he learns to be thoughtful of others. Buy a copy today on Amazon.com or Lulu.com. AND I would be totally stoked if you can also leave a review.
I completed another commissioned painting titled DTLA. Normally I don’t paint skyscrapers but I’m happy with the results. Now it’s hanging in San Fransisco.
FRAMED! The commissioned seascape painting is now safely hanging on a forever wall. Love it when a collector sends me photos.
