Tonight I will be at From The Source stringing holiday lights and setting up for tomorrow’s holiday market and just upstairs six of my drawings will be on view at two great Greenpoint galleries! As you might have noticed I am an organizer and my events always promote the work of artists, so it’s funny to be on the receiving end. (Shameless self-promotion begins here.)
While on a trip to Florida this year I picked up a Muji market set and drawing pad at the airport in order to fill in the downtime and ease my traveling nerves. I began taking photos of local signage in Gainesville and drawing them. Deep down I want to be a sign maker.
During Hurricane Sandy, drawing was the only way to get my mind off the storm and my fingers off my keyboard. I began taking screenshots of interesting images I found on instagram and drawing them. Then the obsession began, as it always does, and I began filling drawing pads. Mind you, I am a photographer!
What do you think? (I don’t know if I’m prepared for the criticism!)
If you don’t like my drawings, there will be a lot of great artwork on display, too!
Other exciting art shows happening in Greenpoint tonight: Booklyn Bookshop Pop-Up (37 Greenpoint Ave, 4th Fl), Postcards to North Brooklyn (2 Kingsland Ave) & Clay Space Holiday Show (1205 Manhattan Ave. Ste 2-4-1)
