Several of my friends encouraged me to share my drawings with the world. In fact, they said I was being selfish to keep them to myself. For two years, I ignored their advice because it felt too vulnerable to share my untrained artwork. I know that there are artists out there whose work would make mine look like chicken scratch. I know that all I do is pencil sketches. The worlds of color, paint, ink, etc are all unexplored. However, I have come to a conclusion: even if it's not selfish, per se, to keep them to myself, it is an act of pride to keep them hidden. So. Here they are for your perusal. Any talent you find, I credit to God.

    but i really like your drawings. especially the birds. they remind me somehow of Chris Van Allsburg or David Wiesner illustrations.

    by the way, those are some of my favorite children's illustrators so you know that was a compliment. :)
