This is a weird one, I know, but we are upstate avoiding Irene and very near Bethel Woods which was where Woodstock was actually held. I did this illustration as part of a series of trading cards for Upper Deck a few years back and since it was on my desk top i thought I'd post it today. Dark and gloomy here at the moment but then again, in the words of Dexy's Midnight Runners, "Come on Irene".

Bowling Alley At Rohman's Inn

Rohmans is a great bar in Shohola PA, it has one of only four hand set pin bowling alleys left in the US, Babe Ruth would often hop a freight train and come drink here during prohibition, plenty of good stories about this place. I'm about to start doing preliminary sketches for a painting of this place. stay tuned good people of the world.

Driving Home

I'm sat in the back of the car being driven back to New York which was greatly preferable to driving myself, especially in that rain.

Narrowsburgh Bridge

Once again I had until Angie and Olga had shopped enough. That's how I roll.

Tuesday, August 16, 2011


This vintage motorcycle was on display in a clothing store so whilst Angie and Olga were shopping around I drew this really quickly not knowing how long I might have.

I think that's how you spell it. I drew this yesterday whilst waiting for Angie and our friend Olga to be done at a flea market. It's Olga's car, she drove us home yesterday because we had to leave our car upstate to be fixed, weird rainy weekend.

This is a drawing of Sam, I caught him yesterday whilst he saw playing some computer game, always a good time to draw someone. Sam is back in Scotland now and tomorrow I'll be back in Brooklyn. Life resumes I'm sad to say.

I'm Back Again

I'm upstate New York currently and whilst I've been drawing I've not been blogging, I'm getting very sporadic on account of.......I don't know.
Anyway here is Katie, who when she is not playing her game boy device, likes to draw, in this case a monkey. I opted for a 2B pencil and Katie went for crayons. I will post again tomorrow. Say it out load, "I'm back and I'm proud".
