2 Ladies and a Picker on the F, Wednesday Evening (7-16-08)

From West 4th woman on the F...
...and very Auburney woman to her left rocking some serious cleavage.

In fairness i think it was just a scratch.

A little behind

Sorry for the tardiness...right now I'm in Miami visiting my mom until next week. I was able to find a scanner to get some things scanned, but my setup is a little limited down here.

I have something to announce, and I hope to get that done soon...I just have to run some errands down here first.

Anyway, I'll continue to update with some more scans from previous sketches but I won't have anything "new" until I return to New York on the 29th.

This guy kept moving between two positions so I decided to just draw both while I can.

I actually didn't get as much time on this drawing as I could of because some guy saw me drawing and chatted me up. Anyway, nice guy...sometimes I do mind that people talk to me when I'm drawing, but I think I need to loosen up sometimes. I can always draw, I won't always meet the same people twice.

Small Book

A page from a tiny one page book I made at the open studio night at Booklyn.

I went to a great open studio night yesterday at Booklyn. We were focusing on hand folded books done without stitching. I met some wonderful artists, made five little books and started sketching in one on the way home. If you're interested in book making I highly recommend a trip here.

Hard Times

This week has not been a good one for me, a lot of stuff going on...

Some girl in a dotted dress on the L-train, I wanted to draw the big guy next to her but he was big and I was a little afraid that he would rip my book turns out he knew I was trying to draw him and I guess was looking forward to seeing the drawing. Alas, I didn't have enough time and it never came to be.

A couple on the A-train, I'm certain they knew I was drawing them.

This isn't a particularly great page but if I really like the drawing of the boy laying his head in his sister who was wrapped in the towel. It was suck a cool image that I just went straight ahead in drew him even though he was staring directly at me. He got off one or two stops after i started though, but ran to the window behind me as he got off to scope my drawing of him.

This guy towards the bottom was looking pretty stoic and awesome, but it was kinda hard to draw him so I didn't complete his drawing. Oh well.

After the fireworks

A sleepy ride home on the A train on the fourth of July.  I couldn't tell if she knew I was drawing her. She would wake up for a few seconds and I would keep my eyes on my paper until she dozed off again. I'm endlessly thankful the A train is running this weekend.

Independance Rain

It rained all day in New York...what a holiday.

Anyway, more sketches to enjoy. Just to let you know from now on I'll be backlogging sketches and posting only a limited amount so I can update more often.

So, I'll be posting more frequently from now on...though there may be a little break sometime next month, but I'll explain about that as I get more details.

This guy was awesome. New York has a lot of interesting people to draw, but I often see the same type of people. Rarely am I blessed by such a visage of awesome.

...Most read book of all time on the subway, The Bible.

Summer Time and the Living is Easy

Alright, so I started a new sketchbook. I'm already about a quarter way into it, but I haven't been posting as much, because I have a few things going on that have been keeping me busy.

This time I'm back to plain white pages...the paper is a little thin for my tastes but it's about double the size of the previous one so I get to move my arm a little when I'm sketching.

More to come, with more regular updates soon...
