What happens when a cantankerous Cartoon Wizard who has drawn his black and white kingdom “to perfection” has his whole world splashed and splattered by a wild and wonderful Color Witch that feels it is her duty to bring color into his linear world?
It’s a story of “ Dr. Seuss-ian” proportions! A story of a witch and wizard; of line and color, drips and sprinkles, of a regimented way of doing that allows no mistakes and a world of messy drips , no boundaries, no mistakes and opening to see the infinite possibilities .
The Color Witch, Theodocia (Teddy) Swecker, and The Cartoon Wizard, Paul Reynolds,have been artists,writers and teachers for over 40 years and friends for over 20 years.
Since developing the original concept for the Witch and Wizard, Teddy and Paul have continued to identify ways to use their ‘alter-egos’ to teach and help children explore the world of drawing ,painting and writing.
Their example shows children that the creative process is a true dance between the world of the formless and form, light and dark, chaos and order,feminine and masculine, rules and no rules.
