AMAZING 8 YEAR OLD PROFESSIONAL ILLUSTRATOR








People often ask me the question, "When did you become a Professional Artist?" I always tell em that it was when I was 8 years Old. Since I'm also asked to prove it, I have provided, in this post, 'Proof". This is the cover of a book I drew for The City Schools Curriculum Service Inc. Entitled, "Mother, These are my Friends" By author, Mary Anne Gross.It was written in 1969 during the turbulant years of the Viet Nam War, The Black Power movement, The King and Kennedy Assassinations .
Opps! I just realized that I told my age! alright I admit it! I'm an old bat!!

1869?!?!? Wouldn't that make you 147 years old?! heh heh

Although those illustrations are looking pretty snazzy for an 8 year old!
