a presentation of both whimsical and realistic. Animals and children are constant favorites. Traditional mediums such as watercolor, pen and ink and color pencil are enhanced with the help of the computer, but the technical will never overshadow the feeling of hand to paper and the joyful imperfections represented there.
Artist K. Michael Crawford, a successful children's book and children's product illustrator creates whimsical and quirky paintings that lend a sense of waggish to all Michael illustrates. Michael's choice of bright colors create a playfulness about the work in which children love. Michael Crawford has a new book out called The Mystery of Journeys Crowne in which the reader must figure out clues in order to know what to draw on each page. Quite an Adventure to take to discover the Mystery behind Journeys Cowne.
Fun, colorful, whimsical art specializing in the children's book market.
