NYC sketches

From a New York trip last month. It had been awhile since I did field drawing so I sat at a Starbucks and went on a 6 hour bender. I still have that fear of slipping too far into that binge mentality with art productivity. Like a wino but with ballpoint pens.

Summer sketches the sequel

top(boston): The lady in Chinese restaurant camouflage. Gotta love that fairway green.
bottom(NYC):a motorcycle and some subway doodles

All done in ballpoint pen with some washes here and there.

Figure Drawing

20 minute figure drawing in my moleskine plus some hand studies. Wierd how lefties hold their pens. We should hate them for that.

The burbs

Since moving back to PA I've made a lot of attempts to keep my field drawing alive but I've made peace with working from my imagination more since the burbs lack that urban texture I grew to love so much. But here's some suburban field drawing anyway
