Pancakes and Compliments! a book by Keith Huie
Written and illustrated by Keith Huie in Mineral Point, Wisconsin.
Keith Huie was born and raised near San Diego, California. He was never formally trained but learned through watching his father, who was a very talented artist, photographer and writer. He was also severely depressed and according to Huie, it extinguished much of his creative energy.
All of my art is filtered through a childhood of harsh darkness and absolute perfection in equal amounts. Everything I do carries bits of both realities. It is only recently that I have begun to appreciate it.
I started writing the books for my youngest daughter a year before she was born. She is now a grown woman with a child of her own. I hope when she writes about me, she can see that I fought the demons as best I could.
