Meet my sister’s goldendoodle puppy, Jack. This sketch of Jack is from a while ago. I didn’t believe her when she said he was growing overnight until I came to visit and saw it with my own eyes. One night his chin barely reached the bed, and the next day Jack could see over the bed with room to spare! Maybe we should change his name to Clifford? He isn’t as big as a house yet, but at 9 months old, he looks like a full-grown standard poodle! Luckily, he’s a sweetheart. A love of a dog, with the sweetest disposition. He’s a total BFD (Big Friendly Dog).
This was a very quick sketch of a girl on the subway. I filled in her face with the navy color, and used the eraser to chip away at the interior until her features appeared. Reminds me a little bit of a linoleum print.
This girl was so funny—she was talking really loudly to the girl sitting next to her for the whole, very long subway ride—but she looked straight ahead. It was like a subway monologue. I couldn’t see her friend’s face, but I wonder what she was thinking.
Had just a minute or so (while the subway cars were stopped at the station) to do this sketch of a guy standing in a subway car looking at another car, packed with people, as it waited on the opposite track. I was going to erase this one, but my friend loved it, so here it is.
I snagged a seat on the Q train, looked up, and saw this girl.
Well, I saw her outfit.
Wow! Now that’s what I call brand loyalty. And a prime example of a foreign tourist uniform.
Sunset on the Finger Lakes at Dano’s restaurant. Doesn’t do it justice!
Sparkling rose from Dr. Frank’s winery in the Finger Lakes
Rockefeller center plaza looking up at a rare blue sky…
I bought these yellow flowers to celebrate getting to the end of a tough week, then seriously cut into my thumb when I trimmed the stems. Ouch! But they were worth it. Aren’t they cheery and happy?
Baby bump and an e-reader! It was really sweet. She and her boyfriend/husband kept holding hands.
Sketched on the train to the Brooklyn Flea. She had such unique features.
Q train to Brooklyn for a party. This lady is prettier in real life.
One of my first subway sketches.
Pretty, dainty, perfectly summery yellow flats.
On the S train to Grand Central. A guy was doing improv comedy in the subway car and began talking about me as part of his set. This little girl was fidgety and curious about what he was saying, and had no idea I was drawing her. It was kind of a show within a show.
