This is one of a series of drawings I made for a storyboard about how we store our memories and culture. Lots of patterns!

Strange name, and every song is about a love lost or a scorned lover or a broken heart or a girl named Carolyn. Or something along those lines. -Despina
Pulled out a reportage I had done in the Rotunda at the American Adventure Pavilion in Epcot. As I recall I think all these people were running from the heat, just like me :0 …. regardless, good times for sure!

Drawing of a distant family member. He’s prettier in the drawing.
Made this watercolor painting in the Japanese pavilion in EPCOT.
It expresses the feeling I feel when Spring finally arrives. : )

Many years ago I went to the racetrack and thought it might be fun to draw the horses and their riders.
I couldn’t really tell if this woman had dozed off while reading her book… but I drew her anyway. -Despina
By way of a good friend, I was in attendance at Tuesday’s performance by jazz legend Pharoah Sanders. This was the first show of five at New York City’s Birdland. It was quite a scene to watch the 71 year old with his white hair, white beard and white shirt against the deep red “BIRDLAND” backdrop. Check him out if your in the NYC area this week.
I will post more drawings from that night soon on my blog.
With Occupy Wall Street (OWS) back in the media (a protest movement that began September 17, 2011 in Zuccotti Park, New York City) I thought it might be interesting to share a drawing I had done in front of City Hall a few months before the movement began.
Drawing medium: watercolor and graphite pencil – Enjoy your day! Michele
That must have hurt.

This post works today for so many reasons – first, it’s one day after St. Patrick’s Day, and sea shanties are a big part of the Irish-American tradition. Also, we’re getting ready for our exhibit at the Mystic Seaport at the end of April – very exciting!

Greg and I went to see Verdi’s Macbeth at the Met last night. On our way there I watched a guitar player performing on the platform of the subway. Later, while observing the sculpture at the top of the stage inside the Met, I decided I’d draw it like Japanese calligraphy because my thoughts were getting a little zen-like. Something about how music could be so grand and so simple. Or how it could be like water and become whatever container you put it in. So I used a brush pen to draw the opulent chandelier and sculpture. -Despina PS- the show was great- amazing talents and I loved the scene when Lady Macbeth loses it- smart graphics in the set design.
A line drawing of a bouquet of fake flowers that my 3-yr old put together for me the other day.
I had such a great time at the ETSY Hands-on: drawing event last week. It was inspiring to meet so many aspiring artists eager to learn a new perspective on drawing. Here’s one of Kika in her final pose of the evening. - Michele, pen and ink
