Hi Maurie, I love your work and you inspired me to upgrade my version of Painter. Is that a Wacom "draw-on" screen tablet I see on your website? Very Cool!

I first came across your work in the SCBWI site and have been a fan ever since! Your drawings are so beautifully expressive... You're an inspiration!

Really nice work you have here and on your website. The line and brushwork in your pieces is both simple and energizing.
Inspiring stuff

Maurie, you're a wonderfully talented and energetic artist with an awesome command of figure drawing. Top notch stuff!
Comment by Ginger Nielson on 4/18/2007 at 12:30 PM:
Your work is wonderful! I really enjoy your books. We live in NH as well, phones ... flooded family room, roads closed.... with a little opening at one end of our street. Hopefully Maryann will be freed up soon! I can't draw today... too sore from all that bucket hauling.

Hi Maurie! I love the image you chose to crop for your icon/avatar. Great expression!

Comment by Maryann Cocca-Leffler on 4/16/2007 at 4:08 PM:
Hi Mo- If I don't get off this computer- I'm never going to get anything done! NH is flooded- We live in a river town-So I can't leave my house- roads are closed. SO I have no excuse- I should be working! Love your stuff- but you know that!-Maryann
