Fire House

As the weather improves I can start drawing outdoors again and also I always feel like adding color when the sun comes out. This is the fire house on 18th st between Broadway and 5th in Manhattan.

Party of One

That's my kind of party.

Social Gathering

I focused only on the people and nothing else, no background details or anything else at all. just people as design elements.

In Progress

I started this painting of Ryan Giggs in 2003 and just came across it this week. I'm contemplating finishing it but then again?

It's that Friday evening feeling. It's one's right as a working stiff to knock off on a Friday and complain bitterly about one's boss, everybody has one and in this case the chap in the green shirts boss is a complete horse's arse.

The Proclaimers

We went to see the Proclaimers last night at BBKings on 42nd st. It was dark and crowded and they were on a distant stage but I had a go. You gotta have a go, haven't you?

Two Beautiful Dudes

I guess I'm in a positive mood this morning.

Fanelli's claims to be the 2nd oldest bar in New York having been around since 1847. I was there yesterday to meet Angie and didn't get a chance to finish this drawing, or maybe I did.

well, he was reading, what can I say? I didn't have to go into the city untill the afternoon which, as we all know, makes for a much more pleasant subway ride. just ask the gentleman above but then hey, can't you see he's reading?

One of my lunch time haunts, good for drawing because it doesn't do too much lunch time trade so I have plenty of elbow room.

Double vision

here's another example of two different views of the same person. Why she chose to slide over to the seat next to her was beyond me but it did give me another view to sketch before she got off.

Two More Riders

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I need to get out more.

Lady on a Train

she had lis scarf wrapped around her neck in an odd manner that doesn't translate very well but I was certainly not going to ask her to take it off.

Party Girl

She looks like she knows how to have fun.

Pick Up Artist.

He came, sat down and started chatting to this girl. I didn't fancy his chances, I was wrong.

Random Faces

On the 5 train to Manhattan. I start to see the same people day in day out because I'm looking for subjects. I'll never know these people in any other way than traveling companions, one can only guess at their lives.

Old Town Bar

this time the till takes more of a background roll as I try a capture more of the bar. You just can't beat the Old Town Bar.

Laptop Layabout

There seemed to be more laptops than people in the Tea Lounge yesterday. What is eveyone doing? If they're all on chat lines they might be missing the point. If you could e-mail your coffee order then you wouldn't need to talk to anyone at all.

Fridays Homeward Bound

The subway ride home on Fridays always seem to take forever, trains creeping along as opposed to that Monday morning express ride to work. I think the MTA does it on purpose.

This site got a write up in the Brooklyn Eagle which I'm really delighted about. Please go to the Brooklyn Eagle link and check it out.

Thanks Caitlin

Sleeping Beauty

If she was waiting for a handsome prince to wake her up with a kiss she'll still be on the 5.

The Return of Slender Brenda

After the drawing session we all chipped in to buy her a cheeseburger.

April Fools

These are my April fools because they are all on their way to work and I'm not. I get to work from home today so I'm nobody's fool.
