Nikola

04/28/2013 Providence, RI Starbucks, Angell St.  &  Coffee Exchange, Wickenden St. Nikola is a barista at Coffee Exchange. He’s a really cool guy but, far more importantly, his name is Nikola! Like, Nikola Tesla! How cool is that? I wonder if he keeps pigeons like his namesake?  … I wonder if he has a death ray? […]

Ghost Image

04/28/2013 Providence, RI Coffee Exchange, Wickenden St. I love the tan paper that I use… not much of a surprise considering everything in this gallery is drawn on it. But the pages are light, 70lb. Watercolors would destroy it and most media bleed through it. Which, actually, looks pretty cool. This is the positive image […]

04/14/2013 Providence, RI Starbucks, Angell St. Sometimes as I draw a face I know it will look better photorealistic or cartoonish. Then there are times like this one where both faces were less about the likeness and more about sculpting the face with light… which is a highfalutin way of saying I remembered to draw […]

Abstract Lemonade

04/01/2013 Providence, RI Starbucks, Angell St. People flipping through my sketch book always like this woman’s face. The truth is it just wasn’t a very good drawing. When I finished sketching it from observation it was lackluster. I didn’t get enough information or, the right information, to make it really unique. If I proceeded to […]

Flower Dress Denim Jacket

03/31/2013 Providence, RI Coffee Exchange, Wickenden St. I’m not sure if the girl in the flower dress was just the nervous sort or uncomfortable because I was drawing her. I have all these rules in my head that govern when it’s kosher to draw someone. If they’re sitting down they have to be 7-8 feet […]
