Last week, Studio 1482 illustrator Dominick Santise and I attended the Workbook Creative Carnival in Chicago. We then spent the next 2 days creating reportage drawings around the city. Now I love NY, but Chicago is like a friendly, clean, slightly more relaxed version…which frankly is nice from time to time. We navigated the city by foot, walking from landmark to landmark, checking out the wonderful public art all along the way, Picasso, Chagall, Dubuffet, etc. It was an inspiring few days and I’m excited to share of few of my drawings with you.

    very cool sketches/illustrations… like the cosmopolitan breeziness to them deceptively rudimentary-looking…stripped down. A sparseness that sparks the imagination to fill in some blanks. Refreshing… looking around for artist to illustrate a children’s book for a retired TV-writer/current published/produced playwright who has 2 children’s books…not sure your style would be what he’s looking for but…I just want to show him your work. His name is Roy Battocchio…
