Re-creating art for book I'm making, by Gloria Poole of Missouri and Georgia

As you see the cartoon sketch uses only a portion of the page. I re-created this to resize it so that it would fit in a book a toddler could hold. I photographed it that way, to show the position of it, and to show the graphite smudges on the opposite page where I had drawn it in graphite, then closed sketch book for a while, and the graphite made a smudge on the opposite paper. Then I painted it in acrylics after I had time to think on it. I draw my idea, then sometimes, erase and re-draw it or portions of it a few times. This has been a learning process for me because I have always created art in much larger size ranging from 8 x 11 to 48 x 60 inches in size. I penciled in the word "words" to remind myself that there has to be space on the page to drop in the words of the story I have written and illustrated. I also wrote in that this is the first preliminary sketch, meaning that I will make changes to it before it is final. The book I am creating the art for is a children's book for pre-k children but of course anyone could read it. It began as an idea to create a simple cartoon site for my own grandson who was 3 years old when I began this art project when I began this 1 year ago. I did create for him a book with the story illustrated and it is similar to the online version, in a rather chaotic way, on another blog of mine at : So, if you want to read the story of it, scroll backward til you get to the first post and read it, then scroll forward post by post and it makes some sense. If you look only at the end post, you will not understand the story. I am making the art again in a size to fit a particular size book and I intend to publish it in book form. This cartoon of skateboarders is part of the story. I am posting it here because it is my original story I wrote and illustrated and posted to another blog of mine, so that viewers know it is mine, and that I own the copyrights to it.

Update on 24 Nov by me Gloria to add that i posted the progression of a sketch as I photographed each step along the way as I drew it, and painted it to my:

I have never signed a blanket waiver of my copyrights to art I have created and do not have an artist's rep [agent], nor literary agent to represent me, and never did. I drew, painted, signed, photographed and uploaded all art on this blog and on any blog of mine.

For the record and to establish provenance of art I have already created also: the art I have created and signed and posted to this blog of mine is part of an on-going series of art I created since year 1991 beginning in Atlanta, GA that "blossomed" in year 2005 in Aurora, Colorado when I lived there for one year [May 2006-May 2007], and art began to really become an integral part of my efforts to save the baby humans from premeditated destruction. In 2005, I began to realize I could use the art to illustrate my talking points in some cases, and to build a secondary "career' for me as artist. In the year 2006 when I had endured and lived to tell about it a violent crash down a flight of stairs and had trauma, fractures, concussion, because my then-husband DBP tried to kill me to 'make it look like an accident" and he tried to twist off my broken leg, I had immobility for months except on crutches and walking boot after surgery to repair fractures and implant metal. As I sat with leg propped up I began to draw daily and paint to occupy the time and my mind. I also began to post art to the web on my blogs and websites, and also photographs I had photographed. I began a series of art then that is named "ethnic series by Gloria" [me] to attempt to draw and paint an art work of every ethnic group tribe, language, culture in the world and I created eight initial oil paintings in the first batch and posted them to the web on domains of mine. I moved from Aurora to zip code 80203 for 2 and 1/2 years and then moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 with the art I had in my possession at that time. I paint some of the sketches I created in do-overs into oils on canvas and those are very visible on the web. I put many of them on my mini exhibit of art at:, and also on my Picasa albums at and and also on Live and Flickr albums of mine.

I, Gloria Poole, am a white, Southern Baptist Christian, brown-haired woman, single-again, twice-divorced,natural mother of only two children who are grown daughters named Jennifer and Leigh, and also a republican, personhood promoter, prolife activist-blogger, photographer, artist in all mediums, poet, author, illustrator, cartoonist, writer, University of Georgia alumna, U S citizen born in the state of Georgia [but I lived in several places including New York, UK briefly, Nebraska, South Carolina, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina], former TV producer,tweeter, Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri [but before that in Georgia, UK, other states], owner/writer/blogger/photographer/illustrator for words that WORK, and also for Tapestry of LIFE,and also for Life Media & Publishing in years 2004-2011; and a just-for-fun-photographer, and citizen journo . Gloria Poole is my real, born with legal name and I resumed my full maiden name including my surname of Poole legally by Court order at the time of divorce from male DBP in Colorado in Oct, 2007 at Centennial, Colorado; and I also removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore at the time of final decree in Oct 2007 . I was glad to end that four year horrible marriage of multiple trauma and injuries to me caused by male DBP, [which I testified about in Court on several occasions ]. That second divorce is public record in the state of Colorado, and my first divorce is public record in the state of Georgia. I have created art regularly since 1991, and I had formal training in drawing and in mixing colors /paint and painting in oils and I post much of the art I create on blogs of mine. You can see some of that art on one of my name blogs at and see the about me page of that blog for the list of art blogs I own and post art too, that are all different. .
