I never enjoyed painting, but I’m happy how much I got done in one day! I’m going to need to pick up another hard board to do a series.

The new generation of air benders are still so young and full of energy!
Found a drawing I did at Chelsea Market last fall. A father was taking pictures of his daughter with the pumpkins.

I wish there were more hours in a day.

I don’t always have my sketch book on me but when I see a face I do want to draw, I try hard to store it in the back of my head for later

Working on a project with Bobae.  She’s writing the story and I’m doing the art.  Here are the drawings for the first few pages.

Day one of MOCCA Fest was even better than last year!  Thanks for the fabulous people who stopped by and bought something.  Didn’t get to photograph all the sketches I did but here are a few photos of people who bought a doodle from me.

Come stop by table F1 tomorrow for greeting cards, beanies, graphic t-shirts and mini custom sketches!
