Ka-Boom!

Personally I really liked that the July 4th US holiday fell on a Wednesday this year. Gave us all the chance to have a weekend in the middle of the week! Spent a lovely few hours picnicking along the East River in LIC with Neil and our friends Margaret and Julia. The Macy’s fireworks at […]

There were demonstrations all across the United States this past Saturday against the administration’s immigration policies, and the separation of children from their parents as they try to cross the border. NYC saw a large demonstration crossing the Brooklyn Bridge from lower Manhattan, and a smaller demonstration in my neighborhood of Jackson Heights. The group […]

Queens of Queens

June 3, 2018, was the 26th annual Queens Pride parade in Jackson Heights, Queens, NYC. Everyone in the ‘hood was out – and OUT – to celebrate the day. Caught a quick drawing of a few queens of Queens riding along 37th Ave. on the top of a bus, dancing to the merengue music and […]

C’mon Spring!

In the middle of the coldest April in the Northeast ever – yes that means EVERY SINGLE DAY is a record low temperature for the month – we had one nice day. AND it was a Saturday! So I took advantage of this to run out to the park to do a little drawing. But…but…but…where […]

Sears Willis Tower

The Sears Tower in Chicago – now called the Willis Tower – is the second tallest building in the United States. (The new One World Trade building in Manhattan is taller.) When I was in Chicago last year for the Urban Sketchers Symposium, I found it a challenge to include the building and still have […]

Subway People

A great way to practice drawing is to draw people on the subway in NYC. Especially since I live in what’s considered the most diverse neighborhood in the city, I have a wonderful wealth of types of people to draw whenever I’m riding the train. Old people, young people, skinny, fat, happy, angry, bored – […]

pelicans

Just returned from a quick trip to Florida, spending time with my parents, the snowbirds. (For those of you who don’t know, a snowbird is a Northeasterner who spends their winters down in the sunny and warm Southeastern United States.) We always try to make a trip to the shore to see the pelicans – […]
