Moleskine subway scribbles





Dear blog,

Here are some stream of conciousness scribbles I did while I was on the (2) train to 72 street to see THE DARK KNIGHT AT THE IMAX!!!!!!!! Yes it was sweet, blog!!! Heath Ledger was like >:O) thats his clown face. also, my friend Tim's mother Linda was nice enough to not only BUY my ticket in advance- she also snuck me in a chicken ceaser salad and the strongest Long Island Iced Tea I've ever had. So all in all it was a great night.

oh, and when I was getting off the (2) on the way home for a split second I saw a guy that looked like if Slim Shady and Willie Nelson had a baby. That's city livin' for ya!

City Livin'





dear blog,

Here are some hilarious drawings that in no way reflect how I felt inside today. Most of the words are from Ranier Maria songs. Yes, blog, I know its gay to write song lyrics on your drawings but I was really into them while I was walking around today after work. Just like you get into your Kenny Winker album. See?

Subway sketches




Dear blog,

I'm going to start sketching more while im on the subway. People are more inclined to talk to you when they see you drawing dogs and cats for some reason. A guy even took my mailer and wants to collaborate on some New Yorker cartoons. He said he'd email me, but you know how those kinds of things go in the big city.

Sunday is Funday




Dear blog,

I was a busy beaver today. I spent most of it drawing with my friends Tim and Danielle across the hall from me. Then we watched the Bob Saget roast on Comedy Central. I thought Gilbert Godfrey was the best, he kept screaming that "It is completley untrue that BOB SAGET RAPED AND KILLED A GIRL IN 1990!!!" No blog, I didn't piss myself laughing, but I did notice my bowels shifting slightly. I even got to collaborate with Danielle on a painting that is now hanging above their bed (no pics of that yet). Here are a couple doodles of the usual; girls, dogs, hearts, introspection. There's even a cat in there to switch it up. Their cat is always in the cutest poses.

more from the sketchbook



Dear blog,

Here's a cute one I drew of Bubbles while on the train. I miss her dearly. The other is of a girl that Tim swears he saw on the subway. Freakish indeed.

also. this day in history. Bigfoot officially discovered. My mind = officially blown.

Daytrotter






Dear blog,


My friend Laura Walczack gave a great tip to check out this website where bands are reviewed / interviewed. It's called Daytrotter and I think my stuff fits in here really well. It's mostly indie rock bands and such.

So I sent my portfolio to Sean from Daytrotter and would you believe it, blog, he liked my work! I'm really excited about this gig, even though it doesn't pay its still going to be a lot of fun and its just another opportunity to get more eyes on my illustration.
It reminds me of doing those posters for the AV Space. That was such a blast.

I'm really excited. note, the one of the guy with the guitar is from a piece about Mike Kinsella from Owen/Joan of Arc/American Football. I would love to be able to draw him and have him use it in some way.

edit: I didn't draw any of these
