September 18 : James Turrell Inspiration

The other day, my office took a field trip to the Guggenheim to experience the James Turrell exhibit. I really enjoyed it and somehow, that night my sketching turned to an obvious ode to the exhibit...

If you're in NYC and can check out the show, I recommend it! Tip: the lines get pretty crazy, so go early and try to go to the 5th floor as soon as you get in to avoid the bulk of the lines.

September 17 : Danny Kayaks

I drew these two nights apart - a burst of artsy-ness around midnight each time.

BUT, before you get to the drawings, first you get to read about the awesome story (in my opinion) from Danny's kayaking trip this past weekend: so! Danny was on the river and a random lady paddled up to him in an eddy and said "Hey! Is your girl friend the one who wrote that kayaking comic?!?" HA!!!!! She was referencing my blog post from March 17 when I did a mini comic on many of the classic situations that come from dating a kayaker. She said she recognized Danny from the way I had drawn him and his pirouette boat - that she loved the comic and had even printed it out! SCORE! I was so tickled by the whole story (and hopefully so are you) - and now for the drawings I promised:

September 13 : Map On The Wall

The latest project at work has been to create a map of the nearby area for people to post favorite food and drink locations. The initial size was about 5 feet by 4.5 feet:

There's Sara D. Roosevelt Park, which OBVIOUSLY should be represented by green people:

And little Petrosino Square Man!

BUT, alas, the map turned out to be too big, so I shrunk it down to 3.5 feet by 2 feet and just printed out a bird's eye view of the park thanks to google maps:

Still pretty fun.

And that's my sharing for the day - Happy Yom Kippur!

September 10 : Lady With Green Hair

It's hard to photo copy a water color painting and get the right colors/texture to come through, but here's the best I could get! Featuring Lady with Green Hair in NYC.
