Sketching The Line

I’m honored to be included in the Canadian ART IN TRANSIT show “Sketching The Line”, an exhibition of reportage drawings made while of commuters and subway-goers. Back in 2007-8 I took advantage of my time on NYC subways by drawing anyone I could. For practice, yes, and because I just love to do it. I find that the older I get, my career and the opportunities presented... Read More

We navigated the city by foot, walking from landmark to landmark,... Read More

Workbook held its annual Creative Carnival last Thursday in Chicago. Fellow Studio 1482 member Dominick Santise and I decided to hop in a car and drive from NY/NJ out to the windy city. We had a great trip and even better time at the carnival. What’s better than showcasing what you love to do in the company of people that are interested in what you love to do, and having a... Read More
