I have been working for some years now on illustrating and writing a children's story of a silly cat, Mr. Duke, who goes on a journey to join a small make bekieve circus run by Frida Kahlo and her husband Diego Rivera in Mexico. The story is something I promised my daughter when she was a child (she is now 29) and I read stories to her. The result is The Amazing Mr. Duke, Diego's Circus. The 26 drawings with text were shown for the first time at Wayside Expressions Gallery in Louisville, KY. The exhibit ran from January 6 -31, 2012.


My children's picture book was printed in a small first run of 100 copies from Evanston Publishing of Louisville.I have maybe 25 copies left.
