Vincent Van Toad, acrylic on canvas by Paul Zdepski
Painted for a short children's story by Lisa Linn Arroniz called The Frog Prints. It ran as the front cover for the arts magazine, The Main ARTery in Martinsburg WV. The art director, David Heatwole gave me the directions to “do something for the story”. Which I did. I wondered, what would a painting by Vincent Van Toad look like… I couldn’t paint lily pads, cornfields or irises, but a self-portrait was obvious!

It's a RARE thing to have Illustration treated as "Art" in a Major Newspaper... I'm pleased to be part of the story.
