A good friend first introduced me to the art of Varnette Honeywood about the time this work was made. I have always been fond of the way Honeywood combined, colors and shapes to perfectly capture her scenes. Sadly, she passed away in 2010, much too early. She is best known for the illustration work she did with Bill Cosby on the Little Bill series.
