Mother Goose - Laura Goetz

c Laura Goetz 2012, Mary Mary Quite Contrary

Mary Mary Quite Contrary, is a Mother Goose Rhyme that has been passed down through oral tradition and published over centuries.  The origins are steeped in history.  One theory is the rhyme refers to Mary Tudor, nicknamed Bloody Mary, who was the daughter of King Henry VIII.

I learned the words as a child, (the Mother Goose Club Version) unaware of the history or meaning. Although the history is interesting, I chose to illustrate the rhyme on a more cheerful note.
My garden was the inspiration for this illustration.  In this painting, my daughter is portrayed as Mary, and if you look closely you can see her rabbit Daisy.  This illustration was painted with Winsor Newton watercolors on Arches paper.

Mother Goose - Angelique E. Anderson

© A.E.Anderson

". . .Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. . . ."

The  theme of Mother Goose was such a fun, fanciful subject matter. At first I felt this was going to be a challenge. But after I built the 3D model of Humpty, I was propelled by the images I saw in my mind. And everything else just fell into place. Now I am inspired to expand and do more illustrations based on the various tales of Mother Goose. 

To see more of my art, go to my blog: A.E.Anderson - Children's Books.

Mother Goose- Ann Koffsky

Cows, Pigs, and Mice--Oh My!

This was such a fun project to work on! I think the subject matter is pretty obvious for each piece, but I will list them anyway: 
The cow jumps over the moon, This little Piggie, and Hickory Dickory Dock, respectively.

Mother Goose - Lisa Lavoie

I sketched out a dummy book based on the Old Mother Hubbard rhyme. I finished these three pieces.

Title: He was Dancing a Jig!
Old Mother Hubbard -"When she came back
He was dancing a jig."
Medium: Acrylic on Paper
Title: She Went to the Barber's
Old Mother Hubbard- "She went to the barber's
To buy him a wig;"
Medium: Acrylic on Paper
Title: The dog was a-spinning!
Old Mother Hubbard,
"She went to the sempster's / To buy him some linen
When she came back / The dog was a-spinning."
Medium: Acrylic on Paper

The Real Mother Goose - Marilyn Papas

                                                        © Marilyn Papas, 2012

The Real Mother Goose

The tombstone of Mary Goose rests in The Old Granary Burial Ground in Boston, Mass. Tourists think this is the tombstone of Mother Goose.  Elizabeth Goose is the real Mother Goose, however.  I chose to show her claiming her rightful place in folkloric history in this illustration. She annoyed neighbors with her awful singing to her grandson, and her son in law printed up pamphlets of her songs of various rhymes to sell in town in 1719. 

© Marilyn Papas, 2012

Baba Blacksheep

Based on "Ba Ba Black Sheep", this illustration shows a sweater maker trying to find some black wool for his next batch of sweaters. There in NYC's Central Park is none other than Baba Blacksheep on her old 10 speed bike with three bags of freshly shorn wool.  She replies with  the Greek greeting, "Yassou! Yassou!" instead of "yes, sir, yes, sir".  Sheep Meadow is close by, and the happy sheep  responds, "three baags full!"

© Marilyn Papas, 2012 

Pease Porridge in the Pot
"Pease Porridge Hot" is a very old Mother Goose rhyme based on the many meals people made out of pease porridge to get by. I chose to show how in England in the late 16th century, sellers of pease porridge yelled out to passers by, " Hot grey pease and a suck of bacon". This was tied with a string and pulled away for the next customer to suck on to add flavor to the bland porridge.  A child is hoping to name the puppy in the pot of porridge "Pease Porridge".

Mother Goose - Madonna Davidoff

My illustration for this month's theme Mother Goose Rhymes:

Mother Goose Illustration: The Crooked Sixpence © Madonna Davidoff 2012

There was a crooked man, and he went a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence beside a crooked stile;
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

Mother Goose - Sara Kahn

I chose these three Mother Goose Rhymes to illustrate, because they are about Robins, one of my favorite birds. These illustrations are watercolors on 300lbs Arches watercolor paper. They are all 24"x 30"framed

Title: Kindness: Illustration for the Mother Goose Rhyme:

The little robin grieves
When the snow is on the ground,For the trees have no leaves,
And no berries can be found.
The air is cold, the worms are hid;
For robin here what can be done?
Let's strow around some crumbs of bread,
And then he'll live till snow is gone.

Mother Goose Illustration: Kindness © SaraKahn 2012

Title: Rhythm: Illustration for Mother Goose Rhyme:

Little Robin Red-breast
Sat upon a rail,
Needle, naddle, went his head,
Wiggle, waggle, went his tail.

Mother Goose Illustration: Rhythm © SaraKahn 2012

Title: Hide and Seek: Illustration for the Mother Goose Rhyme:

PIT, pat, well-a-day,
Little Robin flew away;
Where can little Robin be?
Gone into the cherry-tree.

 Scrooge sees his old partner Marley's ghost in the door knocker.

Dickens: Vicky Rubin

I too chose The Old Curiosity Shop, since I like the idea of old curiosities. The first image shows 14-year-old Little Nell in the center, with her grandfather leading the way through the shop where the two live. The man in back has just helped Nell find her way home. 
Nell and her grandfather are forced to leave their home because he has lost all their money gambling. Nell goes to work for a traveling wax-works show. Image 2 shows her nervously sharing a room with the wax-works. 

The last image shows the evil Quilp horrifying his wife (in back) and mother-in-law as he gobbles down breakfast in a most uncivilized manner, bending the silver and even eating shrimp and eggs with their shells on.

Dickens: Doris Ettlinger

I  have a page of sketches from 7th grade of characters from Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities.  I show it as part of my school visit presentation.  Our literature text book had no pictures.  My illustration-deprived classmates were excited by my drawings of Madame De Farge and others in the story. That reaction was one of my motivators to become an illustrator.  

I googled "underrated Dickens novels".  The Old Curiosity Shop is an early novel, written serially.  Dickens' early characters were black and white, not as nuanced as in his later books.  It's the story of Nell, on the edge of maturity, whose grandfather is a gambling addict.  Nell gets Grandfather out of town to flee the clutches of the evil money lender Daniel Quilp. 

Nell is the angel of the story. I've suggested a halo with her bonnet.  

Daniel Quilp, who has no redeeming qualities, appears in his wharf shack surrounded by smoke from a faulty chimney and pipe smoke, the red flame reflected in his eyes.  A devil, indeed!

Dickens - Marilyn Papas

"Young Charles Dickens Reading; Stoking the Fire of Imagination, ages 5-9, 1817-1821" 
  © Marilyn Papas

I chose to illustrate how Dickens' father's fine taste in books influenced his future interests. He was inspired to travel to Italy and look into the crater of Vesuvius. He would include a three year tour of Europe for David in "David Copperfield", when his ill young wife, Dora died. "David Copperfield" was thought to be his most autobigraphical book.

"Young Dickens Working at Warren's Factory, ages 12-13, 1824-1825"

    ©  Marilyn Papas
I chose to show how even though this was the most miserable year of Dickens' life, if he could've looked into a crystal ball and seen his future, it wouldn't have been so bad at Warren's Factory. He would've been able to endure his 10 hour work days gluing labels on to pots of boot black (shoe polish) in the rat infested falling down factory on the Thames. I show that he would he would wear "many hats" in his future and as a famous author someday, he would include this experience in a book called "David Copperfield". In the crystal ball, I show young David working at his evil stepfather's wine bottling factory in London. Mr. McCawber, (based on Dickens own father) his land lord and friend, is giving him wordly advice.

"A Future Author Meets Her Idol: Kate Douglas Wiggin Meets Dickens on a Train, 1868"
    © Marilyn Papas

I wanted to show a very warm, and charming moment in a wonderfully entertaining conversation 56 year old Dickens had with Kate Smith, age 12, on the train from a reading he gave in Portland, Maine on his way back to Boston in March 1868. They both loved "David Copperfield" the best; she read it six times except for the long boring parts. Dickens laughed and took out a journal to jot down exactly what they were. She would go on to become an author of 19 books including "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" in 1903 and "A Child's Journey With Dickens" in 1912.

Dickens Laura Goetz

c 2012 Laura Goetz"Please sir, may I have some more?"

Like many fans of Oliver Twist, I remember the famous request, "Please Sir I want some more?"
Oliver an orphan is in a workhouse with desperately hungry boys, asks Mr. Bumble, the parish beadle for another portion of gruel.
I chose to illustrate the poor and less fortunate children in this scene, because unfortunately, hunger is still a reality in today's society. See more of my art at

I am honored my pastel illustration was selected for the front of the postcard invitation.  The back of the postcard has more CBIG exhibition/ event news and info for the Yonkers Riverfront Library.

Dickens: Lisa Cinelli

While reading, researching and sketching for the CBIG Celebrates Dickens in Pictures project,
my sketchbook filled with words and images. The sketchbook pages became a treasure of information
for me to reread and then interpret using a variety of painting and drawing materials.
Not wanting to lose momentum, I have begun another series of images based on my sketchbook pages.

Dickens - Sara Kahn

Sara Kahn's illustrations based upon a short story by Charles Dickens

What I like about this short story from Dickens, is the way he establishes an emotional rhythm.

Later, I found out that a literary critic: Brander Matthews thought that this is one of Dickens' best short stories. He thought that it was closest to Dickens' heart since it was written two years after Dickens' sister died.

In my researches for Dickens, I also found two other interesting websites:

Here are my three illustrations for this story: They are 24"x 30" framed, I made them with watercolor pencils, gouache and acrylic paints.

Dickens - Wallace West

I love a good villain. So when it came to choosing a subject for a Dickens-ian illustration for the CBIG Charles Dickens exhibit at the Yonkers Riverfront Gallery, how could I choose anyone but Madame Defarge from A TALE OF TWO CITES? The predecessor of evil queens and wicked stepmothers as far as I'm concerned.
