Again, having not posted much on my blog as you can see, most people don't know that I had a gallery in downtown Naples Florida from May 2016 to April 2017.  I was given the opportunity to completely renovate a house that would either be sold or torn down in time and could have a gallery there for a while.  My dear friend of mine and I renovated this house in 40 days and 40 nights working round the clock.  I lived there as well as worked there.  In that time, I produced 3 board books.  The first book is  called "Birds on a Wire", which is mostly a picture book.  The second book is called "Svenky the Viking Elf.  The third book, was commissioned by Illuminum Perfume Company in London, and is a book about their brand. Naples Daily News wrote an article about my gallery and work.  I will start posting more photos. Here is a photo from the article in Naples Daily News. This is a small section of a large pencil drawing on paper.   It took 14 hours of work non stop.  I couldn't leave it as the hand would be different.
