  I just returned from my experience as a 38th Voyager aboard the Charles W. Morgan, as she made her way to Boston. It was an amazing voyage and it will take me some time to process all my thoughts and feelings from the journey. As well as all the drawings! So here is a […]

Sea Trials of the Charles W. Morgan

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

Been doing a lot of traveling and drawing lately, and not enough scanning and posting! I’ve been following the start of the journey of the Charles W. Morgan with the Dalvero Academy, and last week (or so) we were lucky enough to get a floating view of the sea trials. She looked beautiful under sail, and […]

Varoom!, a British magazine of Illustration, Culture, and Society, has published the drawings I made of my sister Patty in it’s Issue 25. The theme is Empathy, and Derek Brazell, the reportage editor, asked me if he could show the drawings and ask me a few questions regarding the experience, for me and for Patty. […]

Understanding Illustration…and Teaching

Friday, March 14th, 2014

Last night at one of our Dalvero Academy life drawing sessions, I got my first chance to see the book, Understanding Illustration, that I posted about here. The book is beautiful, thank you to authors Jo Davies and Derek Brazell, and I am thrilled to be a part of it. Well written and designed, and […]

New Orleans, Understanding Illustration

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Today is Fat Tuesday, and New Orleans is full of partiers enjoying their last Carnival moments before the start of Lent tomorrow. But a few years back, when I visited the lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, I was surprised and saddened to see how much re-building was still left to be done. Families living […]

Svetlana and the Delancey Five with Wycliffe Gordon

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Last Monday night I went to the Backroom Bar, in the lower east side of Manhattan, to hear Svetlana and the Delancey Five perform with Wycliffe Gordon. Fellow artists Margaret Hurst, Julia Sverchuk, and my One Drawing A Day editor, Mary Ann Hall, were there drawing too. What a blast! First of all, the Back […]

Lunar New Year Celebration

Monday, February 10th, 2014

Saturday was the Chinese New Year parade in Flushing, Queens, home of one of the largest Chinese populations in the western hemisphere. “This is going to be good!” I thought, and hopped on the 7 train to do a few drawings. When I got out at the Main Street station expecting crowds, I thought I […]
