New Program for Kids

It seems working full time, raising three kids, moving, and trying to finish my book just isn't enough stuff to pile on the mountain that is my "to do list".  So I decided to start a kids art program. I have been working in Oncology for awhile. I have limited contact with patients, but every day I am inspired by their strength, and spirit. I feel very fortunate in my life. God has blessed me with three healthy kids and an incredible wife, so figured it was time to give back a little.
I wanted to do something for the cancer patients I see everyday. I feel so helpless sometimes watching them fight this disease. So, I developed an art program working with kids who's parents have cancer. The program is still in development. I ran my first "pilot' a few weeks ago and now I am working out the kinks. I developed a character just for this program. His name is Blue, and hopefully I will be able to tell you more about him soon. For now, here is my first full color image of my buddy Blue. Hope you like it.
