I went to a screening of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in New York, which was paired with a 7 course (!!!) candy selection! Inspired by that, I wanted to make some illustrations. Roald Dahl's weird, wonderful stories were my childhood favorites. I loved all his books, and Quentin Blake's drawings that went with them.
If I could draw old ladies and pigeons for a living all day, that's what I'd do.
More back to school kids.
If I didn't go into art, I would've 100% been an astronomer and worked for an observatory somewhere out in middle-of-nowhere Arizona desert.
Every year of my childhood, come mid-August and the Perseid meteor showers, my mom would wake up my sister and I at 2 am to go outside and look for shooting stars. Still a tradition I try to keep as an adult, even though living in New York makes it incredibly difficult!
Every fall, I draw back to school doodles. Fall was always my favorite time of year because it meant new clothes and books and Lisa Frank trapper-keepers and going back to class. I'm a huge nerd.
Sometimes I'm the only red umbrella in the sea of black umbrellas in New York.
Tis the season in Brooklyn, NY! We always get a little tree, even if it costs $50 for a tree shaped more like a shrubbery and its needles fall off immediately.
Morning scenes on the subway.
Every October, I spend the month drawing illustrations of my favorite Halloween monsters and bad trick-or-treater costumes. Here are a few.
Art in support of the women's march on Washington D.C.
Political cartoons and thoughts/reactions/stress drawings about the recent election.
Warm-up and warm-down sketches.
