My niece Letícia in his first day of life.
Pastel, sanguine, sepia, charcoal and graphite on handmade sketchbook.
This paper is more than 20 something years old, I ripped it from the watercolor pad with blue cover saying Aquarell, I think it is german. I think I bought it before my daughter was born. Last place were it was basement Upstate. I like everything old, its connecting time. I used ink and a little bit of Kuretake pens for color. Nothing special about this street, it is life what is beautiful, light and shadows, and existing. Size is 12″x12.7″
My nephew Lucas in his first day of life.
Pastel, blood, sepia, charcoal and graphite on handmade sketchbook.
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.
The death is beautiful, don’t you think?

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.
