Superpowers



I have come to realize that I have superpowers. In a park in Brooklyn, I was staring at this tree. Could I bend the tree like a pretzel? With my drawing skills, I believed I could. I wonder if I can see through people's clothes.? I'll have to give that a try.

Trip To Japan



I have always had a certain fascination with the Samurai fighting masks displayed in the Met. One time when I was there drawing with people, I spotted this sucker. There was not enough time for me to do it, so I vowed to come back one day and get it done. Here is proof. I think museums should allow people to try on the costumes that are on display. This would greatly increase museums bottom lines in this photo taking generation. Plus, one could feel what it was like to wear Henry the 8th's armour around. I'd walk to the men's room to figure out how Henry took a pee with it on.

Un-Ice Cream Truck



Everyone by now knows of my obsession with ice cream trucks. In New Orleans they have trucks that go around selling ices. A bit weird but makes sense if you eat one in hundred degree weather. They must be in more states than Louisiana. I've never seen one up north. Now in Brooklyn, we have old ladies who go to the parks with a little 3 wheeled cart selling Italian ices. Soon I will draw one to show you.

Second Bike



Here is my second bike drawing. I spotted this classic near a subway stop in Brooklyn. As I was doing this someone came by and took my photo, she told me she was a designer. When I was done, I left a note in the basket of the bicycle. I told the owner they could see my drawing of the bike on my Instagram account. An e-mail arrived later in the day. The owner was quite pleased. I think they were more excited about getting a groovy note on one of my business cards, than the actual drawing itself. He too, was a designer who works at a great Interactive agency in Manhattan. It is a requirement that you have to be a designer to live in Brooklyn.

The Rabbit



There is a great French Illustrator named, Lapin. He lives in Barcelona. His thing is to draw cars in old ledger books. If anyone finds an old ledger book somewhere, they should send it to him. I came across an old Korean one. So I contacted Lapin and said I would mail it to him. I figured I'd do a surprise drawing in it for him too. So I found an old car parked in my neighborhood and painted it in the book. A gift from the squirrel to the rabbit.

Biking Through The Tulips



My bike is the envy of Brooklyn hipsters. I can see the looks on their faces when I whip by. Having no beard or Mohawk, I let my Globe bicycle do the talking. Lately I've been drawing bikes that interest me. Those that follow me on Instagram have been aware of what I'm up to. Soon people will be begging me to draw their bikes. I may not have the time because I'm busy sweating my ass off flying around the Big Apple. In fact, I'm writing this as I bike around the lobby of the flat iron building. People are cheering me. Did I mention I am blindfolded? I've got all kinds of skills.
