My updates here haven't been as frequent as usual, so I apologize to the people out there who check out my blog. I just finished moving and am about to go on an amazing trip to Italy, which has been a dream of mine for a long time now! I can't even imagine that I am about to see artwork in person that I have been studying for years in art history! I'm excited because I feel like this trip might revitalize me as an artist, I've been feeling a little out of it recently and I think this is just what I need.
I won't be gone long, but I wanted to leave you with two pieces I just completed for myself. Magic mole I am actually turning into my next promotion card - I think it is simple and iconic and good for something like that. The other was inspired one night when I was driving home and it was raining...the lighting was interesting and I just wanted to capture that.
Anyways, I am taking a sketchbook with me so I will be sure to post up some of my drawings once I'm back! See you all soon!

I designed a poster and brochure for the Calandra Italian American Institute, part of CUNY Queens College. They are having an upcoming symposium on independent music in Italian America and they wanted a more hand-drawn/grungy look to the promotions than their usual corporate clean look. Below is the poster and brochure (seen flat from both sides).

Did this a while back but recently rediscovered it (it fell out of one of my pads of paper as I was packing). I used really nice handmade paper for this with marker. The paper soaked up the ink so nicely - it looks almost like the paper was made up of different colored pieces of felt.

As I go through all my belongings and pack and get ready to move I keep finding old artwork and old photos that I forgot even existed. I found an entire folder of my childhood drawings and quickly looked through them and found these horse portraits. It's crazy, I guess I'm still drawing the same things and nothing much has changed.
