Morrissey, Dean


Morrissey, Dean - An enchanting combination of reality and imagination makeup the artwork of Dean Morrissey. 

Morrissey, a resident of Massachusetts has been influenced by the work of Disney as well as many artists, particularly Rembrandt, Vermeer, N.C. Wyeth and Howard Pyle. Morrissey was a freelance illustrator in New York for ten years - winning many awards and honors for his book cover illustrations. He began pursuing a full-time career as a painter. Morrissey is also a writer, and has written and illustrated two best-selling children's books entitled Ship of Dreams, and The Great Kettles: A Tale of Time. A third book, The Christmas Ship, was released in the fall of 2000 and The Moon Robber, the first in the new Magic Door series, was released in June of 2001 . 

“Sometimes,” says Morrissey, “a painting suggest another realm, a place of peculiar machines, by combining diverse elements – light, shadow, color, and human warmth – I try to create an accessible universe.

Charting the Skies

As a means of celestial navigation, the Sandman has worked out an ingenious system using stars, telescopes, charts and maps. Whenever a child is born, he sets a new star in the sky above a child's home. 

By consistently and meticulously logging each new star on the maps of the heavens, he creates an ever expanding route map for his nightly delivery of the magic of sleep. No child is ever overlooked. This painting is about the spirit of the Sandman.

Drifting Closer

There in the sky, sailing towards him, was a strange airship of some sort. Billowing canvas sails and a great balloon rose from her decks. Joey could see an old fellow with a long, white beard signalling to him from the rail. 

Metal bells, stars and a crescent moon hung from the sides of the ship. Joey could hear them gently clanging together like wind chimes as the boat drifted closer...
