It was pretty strange to meet this car somewhere in the mountains, don’t even know where, we GPS-ed Home Depot along the road to pick up a belt for an injured young athlete. Don’t even know how old is this beauty. Ink and red Kuretake pen on old paper.

Celebration. Color only on ties, hinting that joy and emotions does not have to be shown on the surface, but inside, lightening up in faces and souls. Background – a little abstract, indicating community: people and houses.
Used 2 inks and couple of Kuretake pens for color.
Doodley patterns to test out some new pens.
Porsche. The portrait of a car. I experimented a bit with watercolor paper from my old sketchbook. I like that one ink broke into couple of colors. I used ink, Kuretake Twin brush and Kuretake H20.
Just small street in Brooklyn, Homecrest, with nostalgic feel to it. In the right corner quotation from Guillaume Apollinaire, poem we use to love, my best friend and I. My friend died at the end of May 22 years ago. But it didn’t change anything. I used sepia ink and Kuretake H20 on aged watercolor paper. With few dots of color.
Ave U is Chinatown of Brooklyn, colorful and authentic. I like one big store there where you can buy Chinese and Japanese products. I like wild rice from Taiwan, interesting sauces, unknown vegetables, Japanese lollipops, sweets, pickled vegetables, edamame, etc. Street is packed and colorful. I used Sepia ink and Kuretake H20 on old discolored watercolor paper. Added color later. This paper is so much fun to watch, it absorbes ink right away, drying in seconds and sometimes lives weird small dotes inside the brushstroke, creating sort of nostalgic look.
Pelmeni. Drawing of cheap Russian style ravioli. Main thing here play of reds. I used Sepia ink and 4 Kuretake pens on old stock watercolor paper.
Here is a small street from Brighton Beach to the ocean, near that fish store, I drew few times. Always packed with cars. I used my triangle antique pencil for drawing and ink, added some color with Kuretake Twin pens. While waiting for puddles to dry listen to the Thai DJ, I download online. This guy was standing for a long time, looking at me, I was looking at him in silence. I think he works here.
My lunch in ink. I used Kuretake Twin and Zig Clean Color pen brushes and Kuretake H20 on watercolor paper ripped from old sketchbook. Used 3 languages here.
