The only model drawing session that i can attend are on a train. I consider the ticket price my model fee. Sometimes i have five minutes to finish my sketch, sometimes an hour. I have put up a gallery with most everything i have drawn while on a BART train these past three years. Some good, some not so good...
A sampling from a book i hope gets published- "You Can't Go To School Naked".
I have been working on this children's book idea for the past few months, have had some interest, but no bites as of yet. So...i plan on making a few revisions here and there and will have more to show in the coming weeks. I might need to post it along with the Columbus Circle image on another area of the site so it can be better viewed. Let me know..
Stylistically it is a bit of a departure for me, but i feel the story needed it.
My kind thanks to those who have commented on this piece. with your suggestions in mind, i have re-uploaded the image.
I am going to chronicle the steps i took with this image in the My Process article category section, when i have a minute or two...
This is the piece that the model from my previous article is in. I normally don't work in Photoshop, and i have learned a lot in the past few months on how to make it work for what i do.
This piece is based off my experience of taking the 1 from Van Cortlandt park to Columbus Circle everyday for the week that i was in New York. I intend on having this piece be part of a body of work that i am currently involved with.
I have been working on another piece that includes this model, and i thought it would be fun to do a portrait just for kicks...
I have her in a piece i am doing on Columbus Circle, I will post it as soon as it is finished.

After a week of being in my studio, i had to go outside for at least an hour to get some sanity back. I woke up early saturday morning, hopped into my car, and drove only five minutes away to do some landscapes. It was nice to have some real peace and quiet. I don't allow myself to do this very often.
These are some of the new images from the story that i am working on at the moment. These particular images are markers that indicate where the story goes, like postacrds of where the scooter is at any particular moment.
