Brooklyn


Water towers are a characteristic of Brooklyn, one day they will be a thing of the past. It would behoove me to draw a series of them so maybe this is the first of many. Bars, nudes, water towers and people sleeping on the subway.

A true addiction, your sketches, whichever category they belong to! :)

Vasco said...

category = series

Thanks Vasco, I'm delighted you think so.

love this- and the series idea-

Stephen Gardner said...

Great to see you last night Memi and thanks. It turned into a late one after I got "Chad'ed" We'll get to go drawing soon I hope.

memi said...

That was fun-
Glad that it was not on me to explain why you were out so late!
Yes! drawing soon!

This is unusual for you but I like it! I think you should do more of these skylines! Oh, I forgot, there isn't anything you can't do well. ;o)

I want to get Chad'ed.

I love to read your posts, Steve. They always make me laugh, and who couldn't use a good laugh.

Perhaps a bar with a water tower in the background, a nude sitting on a bench in front of the bar, and,hmmm, sleeping people on the bus?

This is a great post! I struggle to get Lincolnshire into my work, here is my interpretation in a comment:
---------------------------
There you go, totally flat.
Big skies though, and great to come back to when you have travelled :-)

Stephen Gardner said...

Sheila- I don't do windows, but thanks as always.

Hans- Getting Chad'ed is what it's all about. Next time your are over, it's on.

Nancy- (thanks for your name) I think I might have that sketch somewhere, I'll look for it.

Stephen- I don't know if I mentioned this already but I was born in Wisbech and I have family in Holbech, I know that part of the world very well.Very flat, takes me back to riding me bike everywhere.
