Toulouse, France

It’s been a while since i have posted something. Here is a drawing of a street in France from a somewhat 45 degree angle. It was a study for another series of drawings i’m in the process of doing. 

Edit: 2 Months almost since my last post? Yikes!

Broad Street Records Logo


I was recently asked by a good friend to help design a new logo for Broad Street Records, which is located in Hamilton, New York. They promote music and culture at Colgate University, and in the surrounding area by hosting concerts, radio shows, and much more. The initial brief was "modern vintage". After a day or so of brainstorming and doodling everywhere, i had a bunch of ideas, of only which 2 made it to the final round. Eventually the top design was picked. The one below, which really fun to illustrate doesn't get the job done.

Hudson Concert

And with this location drawing, i finished this tiny sized sketchbook. Time to start a new one!

This is a location sketch at Pier 84 in Manhattan. I was biking and found a live concert where they were teaching people to salsa dance. Unfortunately, i had my book bag with me, and was quite.. sweaty from the biking so i couldn't join. Instead i did the next best thing and did a quick sketch while enjoying the live band. If you're interested this is the event MoonDance

The Frying Pan, Manhattan, NY

A drawing of The Frying Pan (have yet to visit, but it looks fun). if i recall correctly it used to be a sunken boat in the Chesapeake bay which was salvaged, and refurbished into a bar here on the Hudson.

New York Estonian House


Some color added

Did this sketch today during a break. Always wondered what this building was about, and it turns out it is the Hub of Estonian culture on the American eastern seaboard. Who would have thought?

The WoolWorth Building

I present to you, The Woolworth Building! One of the oldest original skyscrapers of NYC.

Some new small Location Drawings

Street signs

Katz Deli (Never got to finish it)

Abandoned port on the WIlliamsburg waterfront 

Williamsburg Bridge

The Sphere in Battery Park. I did not know this at the time but this sculpture was originally at the World Trade Center. It survived the attack and was moved here as a memorial. 

I been really busy with non-art related stuff the last couple weeks, so my drawing had to take a temporary back seat. These are some of the locations drawings i have managed to sneak in while biking, driving, or just plain old walking from point A to point B in NYC

MotoGP casey stoner

Casey Stoner: an Australian professional motorcycle racer. I have been playing around with this poster idea in my head, but i needed to do a study before hand. This is that study. I'm hoping to finish this poster idea i have in my head before the MotoGP finishes this year

The last of the Chile Location Drawings

Details of the postcards i posted before, and also some new ones. Unfortunately the ones that are still line are i finished painting only moments before i had to leave for the airport, so didn't get to take a picture of them before i left. i left a few behind for some of my family members to keep, and the others are now traveling internationally, and will hopefully arrive soon!

Finally editing pictures

    I recently arrived back home to NYC, and i wont lie, i got the travel blues. It was awesome seeing my family for the first time in 8 years, and trying to catch up. But with only about 3 weeks to catch up on 8 years, the time just flew by. Here's a teaser of some of the photos im going to share with you guys from my trip. More Santiago, Chile street art!

Chile Postcard previews

A quick preview of some postcard I'm sending out from Chile. Don't know who is receiving what yet. I might just send them out at random. All these were drawn and painted on location.

I'm so happy with the way they came out that I'm having a hard time convincing myself to send them out :P, so i hope you guys like them!
