Spring Street Studio

I've been getting back into the swing of figure drawing lately, thanks to the kind folks over the Spring Street Studio in SoHo. If you are looking for nice quiet place to log some model time, I recommend you head over. So expect plenty of future posts full of me showing off my prodigious abilities, but for now here is small preview.

New York Times Book Review

Nicholas Blechman, the incredibly easy going AD at the New York Times Book Review, e-mailed me a few days ago for an Illustration featuring the British novel Peripheral Vision by Patricia Ferguson and of course I accepted. It was a little rough for me as I basically had 48 hours to go from sketch to final, but all in all it worked out pretty well and in the end I had a ton of fun.

The accepted sketch.

Some fun reference provided by my apartment mate and fellow illustrator Wesley Allsbrook, who's site you can check out here .

The finished ink.

And lastly the final. Thanks to Mr. Blechman this should be available on news stands either this weekend or next. If you feel like seeing it bigger be sure to check it on my site at

And if for some reason you are interested in the review itself, it is available online at

WORD Bookstore Window Display

Hello all, yesterday I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity set up a few of my plexiglass screen prints at my favorite bookstore WORD on 126 Franklin St in Greenpoint Brooklyn.

It's a great local bookstore, with an incredibly friendly staff, a nice selection, and incredible appearances by authors.

But what makes them even nicer is that they lend their front window to local artists for self promotion. So I took them up on it.

So go visit WORD at 126 Franklin St and have a look see, they should be up for about a month. Enjoy. Also feel free to check some better photos of these prints at my

Late last week I was fortunate enough to be contacted by the wonderful SooJin Buzelli to do the Road Test section illustration for PLANADVISER magazine. Basically it was a great excuse to research motorcycles, and during the course of a few revisions try to work on inhabiting my drawings with more interesting characters.

The initial sketch, seen below, wasn't quite exciting enough.

So I tried to up the ante by pushing the color somewhere a little more interesting.

And here is the final, I hope you like it.

Texas Bound Magazine

Earlier this week I again had the pleasure of working with Rachel Wyatt on a job for Texas Bound Magazine featuring the ten best Texas songs. Rachel gave me the nerve wracking decision of picking five songs from their list to base five 2x3 spots on. "Do I want T-Bone Walker or Bobby Fuller, Willie Nelson or Archie Bell, Janis Joplin or Buddy Holly?" The choice was literally keeping me up at night, but one thing I was certain of is that Buddy Holly rocks and Janis Joplin is too hard to draw.

The sketch.
The ink.

The final. To see the other spots, including the Sir Douglas Quintet and Willie Nelson check out the main page of my new site at
