All About Duncan and His Books

Introducing Duncan Tonatiuh

From www.teachingbooks.net: My father's American and one of his grandfathers, my great grandfather, was Scottish. Duncan is a very Scottish name. I believe it means dark warrior or brown fighter. My mother is Mexican and I was born and grew up in Mexico. In Mexico, Duncan is pronounced, "Dooncan." I like being called 'Duncan' in English and 'Dooncan' in Spanish. Tonatiuh is the name of the Aztec God of the Sun. It is my middle name but I like to sign my books Duncan Tonatiuh because I feel it represents me better. My artwork is very much inspired by ancient Mexican art, like that of the Aztecs, Mayas and Mixtecs. My full name is Duncan Tonatiuh Smith Hernandez.
