Sketch for the curtain for the shul. Designed with a partner. Inktense, Kuretake, Photoshop.
Beetle. I won’t want to drive it, I like big cars, but have to admit, it is good looking. Sepia ink and couple of Kuretake pens.
I usually remember people I sketched, for a long time and hold myself from jumping at them with “Oh hi, we know each other.” if I meet them somewhere.
Sketched people around me. This little boy with Mohawk noticed me drawing and engaged me into adult like conversation about drawings, styles, favorite pencils, anime, comics, comic stories about fights with devils, etc. I usually avoid even eye contact to keep my freedom, but had to respond to his direct questions. Funny, I didn’t feel that I am talking to a child, but to a fellow artist.
One day I went to draw a backdrop for the play and down the street saw that beauty. Garbage truck was backing up passing few centimetres from me, unable to make a turn on narrow Brooklyn’s street. I closed my eyes when it passed that elegant antique Jaguar. I think it is Jaguar SS 100 from 1937, built in England. I can’t help it, being charmed by cars. Used ink and 2 Kuretake pens.
Ketchup with Ziza. My old work. Portrait of my daughter. I was the best story teller, combining the fairy tales I read and world folklore, using my imagination and making up a happy ending, with good amount of horror. So I wanted to catch the expression of listening. I used watercolor, size is 20 inches.
CATching up with Bob. New Kuretake pens I recently got online. Very happy to highlight my palette with this wonderful Kuretake Twins.
I used my Sepia again, warm puddles with orange rims, medicine for my wounded soul. I would add a bit of cold grey Lexington ink, but it makes it stringy, some sort of chemical reaction. Bits of color with Kuretake, to appreciate pure green of apple, flowers on Albert’s Royal, red on tomato and warm strokes on sardines. Main attention on negative panting of bouquet. I painted background cutting into brunches, what a twisted game.
Here what is preventing me from drawing all the time, walls. Wall in the dining room with tree and birds. (The rest of the room contains more plants and stuff). I did monochromatic drawing with some dirty paint, then rubbed some color and glazed on the top with interference (soft gold) glaze.
I made this Federico Aubele’s song my ringtone,”Despertar”, for my ear it sounds “Desperate”, but in Spanish it means “Awakening”. So even when I get calls from unpleasant recipients, like mortage companies, it still gives me warm vibe. Here used ink and Palomino Blackwing 602 pencil. Drew my lovable Fellini cat and used 3 languages.
