Each weekend Studio 1482 will be featuring posts from the One Drawing A Day archives. Today’s post is by Dominick Santise, from back in 2016. It’s titled “Drawing Friends” #ODADarchive Another drawing from years ago in the Magic Kingdom (Mickey has been on my mind lately). Another reminder of things that have changed. Change is always […]

A Different Day

The rain was pouring down, as it often does; shelter was too far away, and the day was drawing to a close. Time spent looking for a better spot to make myself comfortable would have been wasted. Everything was soaked, not to dry until days after I returned home and laid out all the paper and supplies that I carried. Problems […]

Marks in the Earth

No matter how many times I round the corner in the “African Safari,” knowing full well that the pachyderms will be in full view at any moment, I am always in awe of the beauty, size, and majesty of the elephants as they socialize with one another, marking their territory by gouging the earth and […]

We tend to get past what’s going on in our lives rather fluidly and start pondering broader subjects. Nothing topical—we never discussed the state of insanity that is the world at […]

Main Street USA

  I have loved parades for as far back as I can remember—on the television, on the sidelines, blocks away—there is always something that seems so magical about so many different types of people celebrating in unity. The pageantry of the next honored participant, gazed at by young and old along the edges, overflowing into […]

For the love of drawing

Eddie’s post last Sunday inspired me to flip thru one of my sketchbooks from deep in the archives. What a trip! I found drawings I did my second summer on location with my teacher and mentor, the late David J. Passalaqua. Despite dating myself, this drawing was done in Disney World in 1992. (Yep, it’s 20 years […]
