Last Sunday I had some of my work shown in a cafe in the East Village. I brought a 5x7" watercolor of Beyonce from her music video Hold Up. Looking around, I was inspired by the variety and quality of the work on display. I'm especially eager to try some larger format traditional work. I noticed how the larger pieces were much easier to appreciate from a distance. Kind of obvious, I know, but easy to forget when you work primarily in a digital medium and every piece is on a screen 18 inches from your face.
The gallery photos here are actually a mix from two showings. The other was in Gramercy Park about a month ago and I showed page one of One Lucky Bride which I had inked traditionally. Both shows were organized by the talented artist, woodburner, and custom furniture designer Rey. Both times, I got to meet interesting people and talk shop. It didn't hurt that the cafe, Vspot, specialized in delicious vegan/ latin american food, including fried plantains! I haven't had platano since I was a kid.
