This is a personal piece I recently was created over several months stopping and starting. It's mixed media: india ink, acrylic paint, and collage.

Threadless, again!

So, I'm giving this threadless thing another try! Don't know how this one will turn out, but these are some superhero drawings from my childhood. I think they'd make a cute t-shirt.

Coffeeshop Posters!

I completed theses four posters/advertisements for a coffeeshop in Jersey City. They are selling a new brand of coffee and wanted me to create fun posters that would describe each one to their customers.

I scanned some new textures into my computer for this project, and I'm very happy with how they came out!

NY Press - Best of Manhattan

A cover and four interior illustrations I recently completed for The New York Press for their Best of Manhattan 2010 issue. This was tons of fun because I got to incorporate a lot of hand drawn lettering...something I love.

I am back from my trip to Italy and have some sketches to show for it. These are in chronological order.

This is a view of Trajan's Column and some of the surrounding buildings in Rome. It was a rainy grey day so I did this one pretty quickly and under an umbrella.

My favorite piazza in Rome, Piazza Navona. This is one of the three beautiful fountains. I drew this as enjoying a caffe latte.

This was in a neighborhood called Monti in Rome. We were on a search for crepes but didn't have much luck, so we ended up in this cute little cafe. The owner didn't speak much English but asked if he could buy this and hang it in his shop, haha.

In the Colloseum, Rome, looking out at the whole arena. The day was hot and very sunny. I was sitting on steps next to a lady who spoke Danish.

My first of two drawings of Michelangelo's David in the Accademia, Florence. This along with the Birth of Venus by Botticelli were my favorite artwork to see in person.

David number two, different angle.

Sitting in an amazing little piazza in Florence near the Uffizi. There were at least 10 sculptures under an awning, so I sat down and drew one of them. Of course I pick the one with the horsie. :)

During our one day in Venice we stopped at this restaurant to escape the cold. I ordered one of my favorite dishes of the trip, spagetti with ink sauce and cuttlefish.

On our last day in Rome we sat in on the steps of a church in the Piazza di Popolo and I drew an accordian player who played some amazing classical pieces. When we walked through the piazza four hours later he was still playing!
