sketch crawl

Yesterday, I went on my first sketch crawl, and it was a total blast. We had a nice group of six, which seemed to be the perfect size, and spent a good chunk of the day at Vazac's horseshoe bar, later making our way to the Sidewalk Cafe. Our group included Steve, Peter, Mel, the other Steve, and Juliane, and I think we all had a great time. Here's to doing it again soon.

This illustration was created for a Valentine's Day themed party in TriBeCa this weekend. There's a fashion show and a dance party with multiple DJs, but, to make this event even better, it is a benefit for the charity God's Love We Deliver, an organization that provides meals to people living with debilitating illnesses. If you'd like to join in on the fun and support a great charity, check out the Facebook page for the event.

A little about the illustration -- I know I'm mixing my saints together a bit, but Saint Sebastian has always been a favorite of mine, so it was a lot of fun to do this piece. On top of that, my very dear friend Robert is one of the organizers for this event, and he was kind enough to both involve me and allow me to twist his arm to pose for the piece. Thanks, Robert!

Three for the Price of Two

I made it back to the Society last night with my favorite Englishman, Stephen Gardner. On Thursdays, the two models wear costumes (like the mermaids below), and on Tuesdays, they pose nude. One of the models last night had an extra accessory.
