Calling all goblins and ghouls …. here’s to spooky (safe) adventures!

The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art. -Leonardo da Vinci

There is something alluringly inpenetrable about seafaring towns. Perhaps it is that air of magic that comes with being so intimately entwined with the rhythms of nature, with death, the weather, and God, a breathing in and out of time, where days become years, and generations contract into a single moment. I delight in following the clues that beckon the seeker, the chains, crosses, and anchors that tell their symbolic tales, imagining their implications interwoven into a net of humanity.
I made this drawing on a miserably cold day, unable to resist the sheer grandiosity of the image, and if you pay attention, you can follow my reasoning through the lines of the art and the notes.
It’s almost the end of October and you know what that means…Halloween! I made this drawing last year (or the year before?) when I took my Parsons illustration class to draw the kiddie Halloween parade and carnival in Washington Square Park in New York. Love the little guy with the skeleton suit. Halloween is the best. – posted by Veronica
ding,dong … goes the door…next stop…42nd Street The train begins to crawl, a microcosm of New York life journeys on silently, patiently intent on their way.
Suddenly, a chord strikes, the silence broken…bold, bright, voluminous sound fills the car, jolting the all too familiar hum into a excited fury of motion. But from where? THERE! I see them! It’s the mariachi, swaying ever so to the rhythm of the train, commanding attention as they play.
Ahhh….the sound, the melodious sound that so easily stirs the soul. Yes, something has changed. 2 minutes have passed, the train begins to slow…a new ease is in the air … next stop 34th Street.

Just a little thumbnail I did while strolling through the Alhambra one day. No, really! – posted by Veronica.
So I’m revisiting the drawings I made last August during the week-long drawing workshop at the Dalvero Academy.
Besides having a great time, I delved a little into a world that I’ve always loved but seldom experiment with–Fashion.
Here is one of a few drawings I’ll be sharing with you from my experiment in fashion. Stay tuned for more -Despina
I made this quick drawing yesterday while having lunch with my 2 year old. It was a nice time.
A few minutes spent warming-up for the day as I sat enjoying my morning tea. Have a pleasant day. - Michele
