Friday Fan Art!

“Kenny Rabbit” by Leigh

Leigh has been a fan here on the blog for some time now, and it was great to get a chance to meet her and her sis, Ysabel, in person last month at the Decatur Book Festival.

Leigh sent us these awesome first fan-art drawings of Kenny and Grahame from my new book, Kenny and the Dragon!

“Kenny and Grahame” by Leigh

…and Ysabel sent us her rendition of on of my favorite dragons, Smaug.

Thanks for these sketches ladies, keep on drawin!

Friday Fan Art- Manga Madness

This week we received quite a treat: this amazing Spiderwick manga by our old friend Annie!

We try to feature young artists only once, (so that everyone gets a chance), but this was just so cool, such a labor of love, that we couldn’t keep it to ourselves!

annie-manga-cover.jpg

It would be great to post all 70 pages, but I’d never get time to respond to all the fantastic fan mail that’s been arriving, so here’s just a sample from chapter four:

Keep drawing Annie! Keep your eyes peeled, we are going to send you something VERY special for this fabulous piece of fan work!

Detritus (part 3)

My dive into my grade school years concludes with some bits-n-pieces of stuff from high school…

Tony D’s business card, 1986

Exhibit H: I really did have a business card in high school. And I really did want to be an illustrator. But I wasn’t one. Hey, a kid can dream…you never know what might happen.

Tony D’s high school ID

Exhibit I: my senior school ID. I went without glasses for a couple of years so I could “blend in”. I also practiced a crooked smile in the mirror ala Harrison Ford and Bruce Willis. It didn’t make me any cooler.

STUART NEWS Newspaper article with a teenaged, mula-winning Tony D

Exhibit J: By my senior year, I was entering all sorts of art competitions. Sometimes I’d place, sometimes I’d get overlooked and get nothing. This portrait of Pat Benatar won me some scholarship money. I loved drawing portraits of the rock-n-rollers back then as music was an integral part of my teenage life…and still is today.

This antique is called a record

Exhibit K: Speaking of Rock-n-Roll, I’ve spoken about the impact of beautifully designed and packaged albums before. And, though this was over 10 years old by the time I graduated in high school, this tri-fold presentation of Elton John’s 1974 classic, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, was just awesome. You had typeset lyrics matched with hand-rendered imagery.

Look! Its like a 12″ book of rock!

With my record player and headphones, I was lost in Elt’s falsetto harmonies and Ian Beck’s and David Larkham’s cool illustrations. Both of artists, of course, went on to illustrate popular children’s books.

authentic Mixed tape, 1988

Exhibit L: This time period in my life would not be complete without showing this – the liner card to a mixed-tape from my high school girlfriend. Though I haven’t talked her in years and years, people like her that came in and out of my life certainly help mold and prepare me for the next chapter in my story.

Like the art contests that I didn’t win, my failed relationships (I feel) toughened my skin and strengthened my resolve on that winding journey to success and happiness.

Friday Fan Art!

I’ve been traveling for the past few weeks hence the lack of FFA, but now that I am back in the studio, there is much to share!

Thimbletack by Andrea

Angela received this cool note from our new favorite felt-master, Andrea Graham:

I enjoyed reading the Spiderwick Chronicles aloud to my three boys and looked forward to the illustrations as we turned each page. I am an artist as well, a feltmaker. While all my work is original, I was moved to create a likeness of Thimbletack. I have attached 2 images of the piece. He is entirely sculpted from wool, no sewing, no painting. I hope you enjoy seeing him.

We totally do Andrea! He is really neat! Thanks for sending him along (remember, he likes just a bit of milk at night – otherwise he gets…moody). Keep up the fantastic fiber art.

Thimbletack and Lemondrop by Andrea

Detritus (part 2)

Middle School glasses

My excavation of my past continues in this virtual display culled from a box full of artifacts collected during my middle school years.

Merit badge sash

Exhibit E: Merit badges from my years as a Boy Scout. I think I was more interested in collecting the badges based on how cool they looked moreso that what they represented. Hence, the awesome snake head for my first, the “Rattlesnake Milking” merit badge. I also see a variety of other favorites such as: “FBI Skills”, “Lyre-playing” and “Electrical Tower Ascension”…oh yeah, and “Art”.

PS – I came close to becoming an Eagle Scout, but lost interest and moved onto other hobbies. Nonetheless, I’ll always have the fondest of memories from my years as a scout.

Picasso in Miami!

Exhibit F: I really did see Picasso in Miami. My middle-school art teacher, Tom Prestopnik (aka Mr. P), took a busload of kids. I don’t remember much of the exhibit except someone in our class grabbing one of Picasso’s original sculptures on display so that he could examine it closer. Mr. P had to talk very calmly to him as he instructed him to put it back. You know, its like the way someone speaks to their indoor cat when it runs out the front door and freezes, just seconds from bolting, in the front yard.

Muppets by Tony D., circa 1981ish

Exhibit G: One of my favorite Christmas prezzies from this time was a View-Master projector that Santa had gotten for us DiTerlizzi kids. The reels that came with it were all of The Muppet Show, the best variety show in the universe. It didn’t take long for me to figure out that I could trace the projected images onto a piece of paper taped to the wall, where I would then meticulously color each one in watercolors…and I wonder where my stamina for my book projects comes from…

Next time: High School Junk!
