Comic Book Art Suites Me

Paper Doll Veronics of archies gang

My favorite comic books as a youngster were Little Lulu, Archie Comics, and Scrooge Duck. We were playmates.

When I read comics, the characters jumped off the pages and into my mind. I imagined Lulu would skip down the street with her little black purse and play hop-scotch with me, and I imagined stopping by to see Huey, Dewey, and Louie with their uncle, Scrooge McDuck, and I imagined going to the beach with Betty and Veronica and the Archie gang.

Comic characters drawn and painted with bold lines and colors have influenced my art today.

When I look at my art – because art is a journey – it reminds me of where I’ve been and where I’m going, and that makes me smile.
