Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

It's amazing that for the past 19+ years of living in New York, this is the first time I went to see Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, a New York tradition that started in 1924! This balloon parade is really sweet: huge floating toys, stilt-walkers, marching bands... I just wish it wasn't below freezing today-I couldn't feel my fingers...the drawings below kinda show that! Happy Thanksgiving and Hanukkah, everyone! Enjoy family time and the food! I'm running out now to do just that...

Here's my last year's post dedicated to the Thanksgiving celebration.

Life Drawing

My friends with loft space in Brooklyn started to host weekly model drawing sessions, and I'm so grateful to them for this opportunity to draw! Great model, great people, great music and home-made mulled wine with berries...not bad for a rainy cold Tuesday after work.

Life Drawing: Pattern Play

 Our model last night wheeled in a suitcase of costumes with her. She was dazzling in her feathers, patterns and wigs. She looked like a mesh-up of cultures and schools: Art Deco, African, Art Nouveau, Japonese, and her own personal style...Kika was just great to draw!

I was recently commissioned by a private collector to do a piece with three bird species: Snowy Egret, Great Blue Heron and Green Heron. These birds are so beautiful. Here are my thumbnails and the final art. I really enjoyed working on this!
