I went out to the Society last night for Jazz Sketch Night, and it was a great time. I always love these evenings, and I know I am not alone. The crowd of sketchers last night even included Tony Bennett (yes, that Tony Bennett). I wish I had gotten a peek at his drawings.
Kudos go out to my ever-awesome friend Stephen Gardner. It was his first time running the sketch night (which will soon become a weekly occurrence) and he kept us all in line. Thanks, Steve!

I spent my Sunday on various waterfronts in the city, starting at noon at the South Street Seaport where I met up with my dear friend Steve, and we both sketched the above ship off of Pier 17. From there, we ended up walking down the Westside Highway along the water and made our way to the Frying Pan (well, actually the Fireboat) at Pier 66, where we got in a bit more sketching while hanging out on a really cool old, rusty boat. After I tried the covertly draw the gentlemen below, they ended up buying the sketch from me (and they were really nice guys to boot). It was a really fun day.

This illustration is for a poster for another event later this month that has been put together by FrockOn. This party is in Ohio and has a green theme in more ways than one. The event is focusing on raising awareness for recycling. There will be a fashion show put together by a NYC designer styled completely from a local thrift store. Attendees are asked to bring an article of clothing to donate to the thrift store as well. To bring the green theme one step further, green ice cream will be served to all the guests. There will also be live music and a jewelry and art show by local artists.
For more details on the event, you can check out the facebook page here.
Thanks again to the ladies of FrockOn for always being such a pleasure to work with.
