[secret band] poster progress

The whole word measures about 21" across but will be shrunk down to 15" or 16" as a silkscreen print.

Drawing varying line widths is the most satisfying part of the inking process. If I don't exercise patience when applying 3, 4, 5 layers of ink I inevitably smear wet ink spots with my wrist.

I rejected this first round because proportions were off (a painful exercise because this took a couple of [wasted] hours to draw). I especially didn't like how high the letters reached into what will eventually be the middle of the poster. It looks weirdly blocky because I always draw these with straight lines to get relative measurements correct before curving the, uh, curvy parts.

TüGGE enamel sign

I like to imagine there's a company that makes pink tires meant only for the sides of tug boats. so I made a sign. I think I'll make more. Maybe with a yellow background instead of white?

240 Centre Street, SOHO, NYC

3-8-17 sketchbook

I've recently become more interested in drawing from life. Too early for an appointment in SOHO and with unseasonably warm temperatures, I found a great bench to sit on overlooking Lafayette and Broome street with a view of 240 Centre Street: the former Police HQ where I quickly sketched this page. Built from 1905-1909, it was used by New York's Finest until 1978. In 1988 it was converted to luxury condominiums because, of course it was.
