Mr. Dunning, I hope you had a chance to read my article about you. I am hoping to send a whole copy of the paper to you by the adress on this site. Once again, this is such a beautiful piece of artwork- full of life, and culture. I can't wait to see it when it is done.
Dear Mr. Dunning

I was amazed when I saw this when you came to Horace Mann Middle School, Lakewood, OH. At first I thought the assembly was going to be boring as usual. But what you did change me alot. Its amazing how many people, animals, and other things you added to it. Everything made my jaw drop. My heart felt so weird after watching you. I didn't know if I should laugh, smile, cry...

You are great! You are really good at art work! Keep on fulfilling your dream! Thanks for coming to Horace Mann Middle School. Come back soon with your brother!
You came to my school today. (Royal view)

The signatures are written in different colors, so they make up the picture on the squares.
Mr. Dunning is from Dublin, Ireland, and moved to America so he could tour the country and show schools in schools along the way. He says his art is therapy for all the work he does- all the driving, setting up and performing on stage in front of many people. The thing he misses m
