Artist uses his sense of humor to enhance his art

EDMOND, Okla. (AP) _ Danny Gordon's life as an artist has him realizing that he's just a big kid at heart. That's why he feels at home illustrating books and drawing caricatures for children.

He was a fashion illustrator for C.R. Anthony department stores before they closed in 1997. Now, he illustrates greeting cards, magazines and books.

His drawing appear in five children's books, including ``The Mulberry Gang'' and ``Jasper's Magic Blanket.''

Gordon shares his art with children during library workshops and school presentations in Oklahoma City and Edmond. He also teaches at the Edmond Fine Arts Institute.

Children especially love his drawings of dogs and cats, he says, and when he sells his artwork, he tries to make it affordable for wee ones: Prints of dogs and cats cost eight dollars outside of schools.
