You may have noticed I've gotten very into doing tiny sketches (and I may, in fact, be teaching a workshop on the subject here in NYC in September. Stay tuned!). In part, it's because it's a lovely way to fit a much larger subject into a shorter time frame (only have f...

 I love this view of Grand Central, as seen from Park Avenue. When you catch it at the right time of day, the iconic New York building is hit with half light, half shadow. Naturally, the clouds rolled in and it started to rain while I worked, but I think I captured the...

Yesterday I went out sketching (more blog posts to come!), but after one outdoor sketch I discovered it was colder than I'd like and decided to turn to an indoor location. As I also wanted to stop by an Apple store, I decided to go to one of my favorite places to sketc...

 In honor of going out of town this weekend, via Grand Central, here is the first sketch I did inside the terminal! I was on my way back into the city from work in the Bronx, and I had an hour to spare before meeting my sister in the theatre district. I decided I could...

 This Saturday, NYC Urban Sketchers met at Grand Central. Sadly I missed the first half, after spending over an hour waiting in the post office to pick up a package. But I did a warm-up sketch of a man on the train to the event!

Then when I arrived in time for lunch, I...
