We passed this place probably thousand times and I never paid attention to that cute restaurant advertising, tall trees, few roofs, cars, parked on the driveways. It doesn’t have to be exotic or picturesque to bring you joy, could be 4 seconds glance on the side of road on the way to work or going home and it will fill you up with happiness. I used ink and 2 Kuretake pens.
Sketched few people on the train on Sunday. Wanted to get to museum to see 9 Renoirs and few interesting drawings, but the line of people was so long and we were dressed so light that we decide to pass and took amazing stroll through the Central Park, enjoying beautiful patches of nature in the heart of the City. End up eating Shake Shack on the bench Uptown, bathing in the sun and laughing at the New York dogs passing by.
This little ball pen is from the Muji store in Times Square.
Saturday morning. Fancy breakfast near computer. Mini tarts staffed with salads, easy treat, good looking. Playing with 2 inks and Kuretake pens. Dirty washes. Really like little Zig Clean Color Real Brush. Such wonderful tip of the brush. Did with it few touches on leaves on the cup.
Messy page from my moleskine. I like to drag my sketchbook everywhere in case I may see something interesting or write down some useful info. So here few things I want to investigate like black African soap and Mexican Acerola cherries, advantages of Holy basil and reminder to bring two ID’s for signing up for the pool. On the top few sketches of people I met.
Dunkin Donuts coffee really helps when you burned by brainstorming about mural’s composition, color range, researches, with very few hours of sleep every night, unable to decide whether you should make a pea soup for tonight and finish sketch in Sepia or grab a takeout and watch another episode of “Desperate Housewives”. Fellini likes to check what’s in the bag hoping for fried chicken, since he can’t smell and his vision is poor, he takes long time to inquire.
I used Sepia and 2 Kuretake brush pens on old paper.
Indian sweets… we got from Indian restaurant Downtown Brooklyn to celebrate life and enjoy evening together. I used Sepia ink and Kuretake brush pens.
This 13-yearold boy really impressed me with his magic voice and deep emotion, you won’t expect. I sketched, while listened. It is sketched over a few street sketches. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=XxmJdg4evBY#!
