Please Help Me Focus On Empathy

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

The image above is from a large mural drawing I created in 2007 called Empathy, designed in a Cybernetics class with Paul Ryan, during my studies for a media arts MA at the New School. I thought I would like to design a cybernetic system for empathy, as an antidote to all the negative systems in our society: racism, sexism, etc. […]

New Yorkers Demonstrate in Solidarity With Baltimore

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

  On Wednesday evening, I heard that there was going to be a rally in support of the people of Baltimore, in Union Square park in New York City. I decided to go over and see what was happening. When I first got to the park, it seemed like a normal spring afternoon. People were […]

Scooter at the Society

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

Had a great time drawing the surrealistic fashions of Scooter LaForge at the Society of Illustrators the other night. Lots of great patterns, hand painted fabrics, outlandish shapes, and fun eighties-inspired graffiti looks. Scooter himself was pretty down-to-earth, funny, and smart; so that helped too. He described his fashion influences as a mixture of Elsa Schiaparelli and Basquiat, what a […]

Inspire Yourself!

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

I was at home yesterday, on St. Patrick’s Day, having taken the day off, as it’s my birthday. I had decided to spend the day doing a little spring cleaning. My thought was, I would prepare myself for the upcoming year, and (also) for the rest of my life. A lot of emotional pressure to put on […]

Drawing at the Society

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

This past Thursday evening, Greg Betza, my friend and colleague from Studio 1482, invited me to go with him to the weekly Sketch Night at the Society of Illustrators in NY. The theme was the Hunger Games, and while I am not necessarily up on the latest movie, I have step-daughters, so I have definitely […]
