Rob P

I haven't posted in a couple of days because we've been upstate and WiFi-less, but that doesn't mean I haven't been drawing. It's really beautiful up here. This is our friend Rob P who rocks. Happy memorial day.

South Street Seaport

I've been getting a few of these types of ships in recently. I life on the ocean waves and all that. Mind you, I an only sitting a drawing it's not like I've returned to my old pirating days.

This is a sketch I did of my friend BRI
We were at the Frying Pan on the Hudson river, Bri was drawing a group of guys who then noticed what she was up to and brought her sketch, nice. It was a really fun day that started out at the South Street seaport. I'll post another drawing of that day tomorrow.

book Jacket Rough

This was the color comp for the book jacket for which I took the shots I used for the demo. The project was canceled but this was about 7 years ago now. It looks very dated to me.

This is as far as I'm going with this one.

After another two hours.

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Friday, May 14, 2010


Here I go again on another gouache demo, This one was finished in four stages so stay tuned good people of the world. This is a reference shot I took some years ago of my friend Michael for a book cover that never quite got going, I'll post the sketch for that at the end of the run.

Brooklyn Bridge

As seen from the South Street Seaport. I met up with some students on Saturday morning for a drawing session, always a good time. I'm planning to do the same again next Sunday. The Seaport has a great deal to offer, whether you draw or not.

I really liked this one. It was done on the way home after a drawing class at the Society when I was nice and loose.

Friday, May 7, 2010


I could do more but for the purposes of a demo this will do. I'm off to do another one this morning so we'll start it all again on Monday with a different image. nice to have something to look forward to.

Dog Walk Against Cancer Day

This is my 3rd year at this event. Joan Chiverton arranges a group of artists from the Society to draw dog portraits to raise money for the event, it's always a good time, trying to draw dogs that have no interest in being drawn. It was a beautiful day and we were in Riverside Side Park overlooking the Hudson River and when all was said and done we strolled down to the boat basin for lunch. Not bad, as Sundays go.

My Other Life

As a jewelery designer, it was pretty thrilling to design this piece and stand by and watch it get made.
