Wye Oak

wyeOak-4

I went to see the band Wye Oak a few nights ago at Webster Hall in New York City. I’ve been a fan for a while, but this was the first time I’ve seen them live. As just a 2 piece they really fill the space with sound and take over the room in their own unique waya. The set was the perfect mix of new and old. I enjoyed the show and really enjoyed making these drawings. ... Read More

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

Neutral Milk Hotel

It’s been a few months since I did a reportage at a concert so it felt great to get out and draw. Neutral Milk Hotel is a special band. I’ve been a fan since the 90s and,without getting into detail, they haven’t toured since. Last year they announced a world tour, which almost completely sold out instantly. Yes, they’re the most popular, best band you’ve... Read More

Stadium Series at Yankee Stadium

As many of you know, I designed and illustrated the animated commercial for the 2014 NHL Stadium Series. Yesterday I was fortunate enough to witness the action first-hand. I thought it would be great to draw from the actual event…so I did. I have to say it wasn’t the easiest event to capture, with temperatures in the low 20s to high teens, my hands didn’t always... Read More

Death Project II & III

SMA_DeathProject2.lr

A few months back I posted some illustrations from a series called “The Death Project“. The illustrations were commissioned by Senior Market Advisor magazine to highlight end of life financial issues that we all have to deal with but are either uneducated about or unaware of. The articles were interesting and I enjoyed the education. I’d love to hear what you think. ... Read More
