Happy New Year!

Here's an 8"x8" hand drawn painting for 6 year old Dagen in Lawrence, Kansas. My first painting in 2017. I created this painting on January 3, 2017. All Rights Reserved.

Over the past 10 years I have met some pretty awesome children from all over the nation who are fighting for their lives in one way or the other, and in most cases, are quite ill with cancers or other illnesses/diseases. That being said, I have either met them myself or people have sent me their information and I have drawn them either has super heroes or as themselves in some fun creation. 

With the beginning of 2017 started, I wanted to extend the invite to continue to do what God has blessed me with. The following little boy, I have actually met in person many years ago and he currently lives in Lawrence, Kansas. 

He has cancer and needs our prayers. I have also made him a painting tonight. 

He was recently featured in his hometown, over Christmas, for getting his very own Garbage Truck.

Once Upon a Time....

Once upon a time, I used to create book markers that I would hand draw, hand paint, cut out and laminate. 

I made no profit doing these and they were painstakingly long winded to create. I no longer make these. 

I sold a lot but again, made no money off of them.
