Pen & Ink fashion illustration

I had such a great time drawing at the Society of Illustrators last week that I came back again last Thursday for their fashion drawing night. The designer Raul Peñaranda provided 4 stunning garments from his collection for the event. Here are some of the drawings I made that night. Thank you to Bil Donovan for hosting the event.  Read More

Nerdlesque sketch night

Sketch night at Society of Illustrators

I finally made it to a sketch night at the Society of Illustrators. The theme was “the Hunger Games Nerdlesque“, which I am not familiar with, but I did my best to capture what the models were putting out. It is always great to draw and even better when you’re sitting at the Society, surrounded by the world’s greatest illustration. Thanks to Ted Michalowski... Read More

Wye Oak

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.

I enjoyed the show and really enjoyed making these drawings. ... Read More

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

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
