New Yorkers

This is one of about two thousand drawings I’ve done of my beloved fellow-New Yorkers. I love drawing people, especially extreme ones, and nowhere are folks more who they are than in the big apple! This couple was shopping at Rockefeller Center, if I recall correctly. -Kati

Crooked Fingers

is the name of a great band that I went to see late last Saturday night at the Mercury Lounge in New York City. I don’t know where their name comes from officially, but before “Crooked Fingers”, I followed lead singer Eric Bachmann as front man of the Archers of Loaf, and I was always […]

Live in NYC

Here is a drawing I made a few years ago in the west village of NYC. The place was called the Baggot Inn. One night a week they invited folk musicians, both amateur and professional, to come and play together. Watching very different people, many of which did not seem to know each other, collaborate […]

you can draw in Vegas

drawing by Greg Betza Believe it or not, it’s perfectly legal and not frowned upon to draw in casinos. I couldn’t believe it, I thought I’d be denied for some “security” reason, but nope.

Some trees are still green, but many have begun to turn intense and beautiful colors. It’s such a brief time to be happy before everything turns grey […]

city of Chania

Chania is the second largest city in Crete, and in my opinion the most beautiful, particularly the venetian harbor. On the water there is a venetian lighthouse and a mosque, all evidence of the rich history of this area. This reportage drawing was made behind the buildings facing the harbor where small alleys are lined […]

La Madonna

This is one of over a hundred drawings I made in Paris.  I fell in love with Paris.  This drawing in particular was produced inside the Chartres Cathedral.  It caught my absolute attention.  The sculpture  just captures the  perfect picture of what life in the spirit could be.  The Cathedral itself was enormous, I think […]

summertime

Looking through some drawings I came across this one from Main Street USA (at the Magic Kingdom). I’ve spent many summers drawing down in Walt Disney World. And as soon as the weather turns warm, my thoughts always seem to go there. For many reasons, it is the most wonderful place I’ve ever been, and […]
