Life with a Magic Marker.

The real magic lies in the minds and imaginations of the students I work with. Putting their ideas on paper is a joy for me. All the drawings you see here are started in front of a live audience. (The details are added after school.)

The drawings shown here represent one year of school visits.

The ones here at the top are the most recent in this school year, then go down to the beginning of the year at the bottom.

I have to say that dragons and monkeys are two of the favorite creatures of kids in schools.

A Kindergarten Story...

Drawn in one half-hour session. (The shading and detail were added after school.)

Kindergarten stories are often the best ones to develop into actual books. My upcoming book, Farley Found It, came out of a kindergarten story session. Look for it in the fall of 2006.

The series above is a rare time I got to draw three drawings in the same story. That's fun!
