Gary Neil Gupton has travelled to Guatemala on mission trips to build houses, distribute food and spread the love. He sailed on the 18th century replica ship Endeavour. He took a walkabout in Key West with the spirit of Hemingway – to the Southernmost Point. He explored southern Spain, Panama and Puerto Rico, by the canal and through rainforests. But his heart will always return to Guatemala where the children run barefoot – and teach us how to fly.

Time to Meet Max: Adventures with Anna and Cole (a new version of the children’s chapter book with illustrations by Gary Neil Gupton) November 11 will be the launch of this new ‘Max’ at the Magnolia Greens Arts and Crafts Fair. New art. New links to come to my website (lesson plan ideas, recipes, photos from Guatemala, coloring book for the kids:). Follow me at, notpugyrag on twitter, sometimes facebook Gary Neil Gupton.) Thanks for the love. Gary
