Jazz and Chihuly

A few weeks back I went to see this fantastic show at the NYBG featuring Dale Chihuly, an American artist who’s mastered the translucent and transparent qualities of ice, water, glass, and neon. He  creates works of art that transform the everyday experience. It was spectacular to see the installation illuminated at night. Above is […]

Ahhhhh Paris

  I just loved Dom’s post yesterday. Yet I have to share … At the moment I’m kinda feeling the crunch. Anthropologie just sent out a blast titled “5 more sleeps till Christmas!” Really, did you have to? So I’m taking a break (as brief as it is) to post a drawing (and it’s thumbnail) […]

A cup of joe

When I look around today though, there are blessings I am surrounded by that would not have been had life moved left instead […]

When2become1

Every so often there’s a drawing that pushes outside of it’s boundary. You can start off with intentions of a vertical piece and the conversation suddenly begins to stretch outside of the box. This applies as much to life as it does an exercise in drawing. Above are two drawings that married each other simply […]

Anticipation

A small drawing I had done on location while watching this adorable kid eagerly wait (with ohhhh…such anticipation!) for the Electric Light Parade to arrive down Main Street. Walt Disney once said, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”  Amen to […]
