Right underneath the subway the Coquito Man yells at the top of his lungs, “COQUITO!”
Kids love it, adults love it, I love it. So yes I sat down, drew Mr. Coquito under the rumbling of the subway, and then proceeded with buying myself a large cup of coquito.
Another study done at the Louvre. Missing Paris already!

While watching the Parade in Animal Kingdom, James and I collaborated on a few drawings. James would color marks on the page as he waited for the next animal float to come. Just when it would pass, his crayon and jaw would drop simultaneously, and I would take it from there. This is the camel float we saw. Had a blast! -Despina
I spent some time in NYC this week and I had a chance to visit The High Line. The High Line is a park above Manhattan’s west side. Originally an elevated freight railroad line, it was converted into a public park and opened in 2009. It has a really interesting vibe and a totally different feeling from anywhere else I’ve been in NYC.

A study on glass.
Just returned from a wonderful trip to Paris, where I attended the Canson Prix award ceremony at the Louvre. It was a thrill to see my work up on the screen at the Louvre and although I did not win the Prix, I felt honored to be selected by Canson North America as their nominee. While in Paris, I found some time to do a bit of studying in the galleries of the Louvre. Above is a thumbnail towards a project I’ve been working on for a while now. The experience with Canson in France has inspired me to pursue it even more. I’m happy to be home of course but also sad to be missing already my second favorite city after New York. Many thanks to Kim and Bob of Canson North America!
