White Horse Tavern

My friend Nathaniel recently made this 1 minute video of me sketching the above drawing, its part a a larger film which will be out as soon as I learn how to narrate it without sounding like a complete idiot (don't hold your breath) in the mean time, if you have a minute, take a look by clicking on the link below.

This one went through some changes, The final version is on top and I'm happy with the way it ended but you can see that it took a while to resolve.

Thom Yorke Demo

This is a recent gouache demo I painted for a class at FIT. Starting with loose watery washes that allow the drawing to show though, I build up to opaque paint. Very unnatural color due to stage lighting but an enjoyable challenge none the less. Always happy to do a demo.

Food Truck

This is a food truck I saw at Brimmfield flea market in Northampton. It sell lobster rolls, it says so quite clearly on the side, the que was quite long so it you waited in line for half an hour and then asked for a taco, that's on you.

Crown Heights

I hope this grand old building doesn't get demolished and some one with vision, (and money) revives it.

The Stanton House

This is where we get to spend our weekends, the upper two left hand windows are where I have my studio, with a view of the lake. Always happy to be here.

Dutch Boy Burger

I'm starting to draw my way down and around Franklin Ave in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Dutch Boy Burger is attached to Franklin Park, one of my favorite bars which means you get a a great pint of Smuttynose IPA and a brilliant burger to go with it. Life is good.
