Imagine my surprise when I found this precise painting on paper hidden away in a presentation folder.
This dates back to 1981. I had just learned the techniques of airbrush, using thinned acrylic to gain some magical effects. I was testing out my style for Porcupine Stew. I was later dubbed a “magic realist” by Hilton Kramer.
This book won a Biennial Illustration Brataslava Award for Children’s book in Czechoslovakia.
AND The American Book Award: Best Art for Books. My award was a Louise Nevelson Limited Edition Sculpture.
