This week’s post is a reportage illustration from August 2019, made on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I was mid-drawing when the skies opened up and the rain decorated my page. I ducked into a nearby Italian restaurant and called my friend Marg, who lives nearby, and she met me for lunch.
It’s those pre-pandemic spontaneous moments that I miss most of all – can’t wait until I can be surprised by a summer rainstorm in the city like that again.
