Graffiti 1

I started a series yesterday. This is Arches paper painted black, gouache, colored pencil and a white fluid marker. 

A little detail

Little scene seen while walking the dogsĀ 

A couple was sitting on their couch watching the Simpsons. It was such a cute little vignette; I drew it the next day from memory. 

Manhattan Bridge

An unusual view of the bridge from a photo by @simplesimonsays. 

Here’s the drawing in just pencil. 

Scenes from Ani Ramen House

I took my husband to this cute little noodle place for lunch yesterday. He was under the weather and I thought a bowl of ramen would help. We had pork dumplings, chicken wings and two bowls of ramen. 

They had a very charming mural–drawn in white on a black background–I loved it. Took some pictures so I could share. I thought it was so cute that the dog was a Shibu Inu. 

Here’s a guy with a Mohawk hairdo slurping his noodles on some rounded steps. 
And a chair that somehow looks very Japanese. 

I really liked it but never could have drawn it in its entirety hence the sampling. Here is a shot of the mural. Very nice work!

(I Love) Gucci

Not that I have anything by them but I really love this line recently. A guy I met pulled out his Gucci wallet and I asked to take a picture of it. 

Gucci is doing some wild stuff lately. Here’s a closeup shot of the wallet:
Here is a bag I love. Only $3500. Maybe I’ll get it as a birthday present. 

I really love the wonderful textures and colors of Gucci’s recent merch. I’ll leave you with an outfit from the runway show Resort 2017. 

Gucci: gotta love it. 

Draw a Bird: 2/8/17

When I saw a picture of this wild looking creature I knew I had found my subject for today. It’s a crazy multi colored bird with some well placed dots. Nature: the best artist. 

Just in case you were wondering here is the photo (from a Facebook bird group):

Been Quiet/Magnetic Poetry Saturday

Our weekly collaboration which almost reads like a letter we would write to each other. Just waiting for spring, for birdsong, for hope. 

Fallen Tree

I took a walk in the woods yesterday during a nice part of the day. I saw many uprooted trees and decided to draw one today at work.
