Hi, my name is Kenneth Kraegel. Thank you for visiting my website!
I grew up in Mishwaka, Indiana with my parents, my older brother, and two younger sisters. Now I live with my wife and my son in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I don't think that I have changed very much. When I was a kid I played in the sandbox, now I play in the garden. When I was a kid I ran around a lot with my friends, now I run for exercise. When I was a kid I liked to read and draw, and I still do today!
Here is where I do my drawing, painting, and writing:
To make my pictures, I first sketch ideas in pencil on inexpensive paper. When I have a good sketch, I draw it again in pencil on thick watercolor paper, then I draw over the pencil lines with a pen and it looks like this:
Then I paint over the ink drawing in watercolor like this:
The picture above took me about a week to make. There is a picture like this one in my book, King Arthur's Very Great Grandson, that took me around two weeks to finish.
Thanks again for visiting my website, I hope you enjoyed it!
