I'm proud to have been asked to create this coloring and activity book about Alexander Hamilton for Dover Publications, Inc. I did a lot of research into Hamilton's life and chose the most interesting parts to include here. I paid close attention to details of period clothing and architecture as well because I believe that's what audiences deserve no matter what format a book takes. Truly an inspirational and brave figure in American history.
I've been included in the new Illustration History website created by The Norman Rockwell Museum. The site is a resource for past and present working illustrators who have made significant contributions to the art form. After creating art for over 70 books during my 30+ year career, it's an honor to be included along with many of my illustration contemporaries and idols. Visit my page on the site at:
When I learned of the students' efforts at West Side High School in NYC to have the street where Norman Rockwell was born renamed in his honor I immediately contacted them and gave them my support. They were kind enough to invite me and representatives of the Norman Rockwell Museum to the dedication...a great event.
