Landmark Tavern


I had to revisit this place for the project, it had been out of sight out of mind but then the frequency with which I visit bars has much to do with proximity. This place has been going since 1868 and is located at 11th Ave and 46th st, which used to be the waterfront.

Again, GREAT drawings! Now when are you going to publish them all as a group of NYC landmark pubs? I sense something really BIG !

Project?...Is there to be a book by any chance? Oh I do hope so, please keep me informed I HAVE to own one.

Your work continues to amaze and excite me...such skill!

Emikk, great to hear from you and thanks.

Anita, yes I'm working on a book right now "Drinking and Drawing, and Englishman's Guide to New York Bars".
The research is killing me.

This is beautiful. I love your work, as a bartender myself, I really admire the way you capture the beauty and character of the people and places in your work. I was also wondering if you sell prints of this particular work. My parents had their wedding reception at The Landmark Tavern on March 20, 1976. Their 40th wedding anniversary is next month and I would love to give them a print of this as a gift. I would so appreciate it if you let me know if this is available for purchase. Thank you so much.
