Happy Valentines Day! I was actually thinking I might look through some of my old sketches to see if I ever did anything on a Valentines Day but I got caught up with another project last night–building a fort in my apartment! We have a huge galvanized steel bar set that we use for our Parkour events that we reconfigured in our apartment. My partner and I did an excellent job and, as a bonus, once the sheets come off the fort it actually is a fantastic indoor mini-parkour-gym, so double win. Plus tonight we’ll be cooking our own dinner; fresh cuts of ribeye with selections from our very first farm-fresh delivery from Nextdoorganics (A pay-as-you-go CSA that I highly recommend to anyone living in Brooklyn). I will definitely be doing a drawing of that as well once a week! I love food and I love brooklyn!
Anyways, these three drawings reflect that I have been very bad at drawing every day for the last two weeks. I have only accomplished about 4 drawings between January 29th and Today…. 😦 I will draw double time this weekend and next week to make up for it a little bit. But.. most of them will probably be of indoor things since the snow just doesn’t stop. 😦
January 29th – On the subway on a Friday after work on the subway. This woman, I wish I had time to capture in water color; golden brown furry coat with matching boots, bright blue jeans, dull red hat, and a tangle of scraggly brown hair.
February 2nd – Washington Square Park as I walked through before/after my NY AIA Review seminar for the ARE BDCS (Less than 2 months away now!)
February 11th – The stairwell in a downtown Manhattan subway station as I was waiting to transfer from the J to the M train. I really like axonometric drawings…

As Ill talk about briefly in a future post, I just started a new sketchbook–a Stillman and Birn book. I had a meeting at 7pm at Whole Foods on E. Houston but arrived early. It was wonderful weather so I decided to kill the time by drawing part of the street that is across from First Street Green.
I’ve already noticed I really don’t like crossing the binding when drawing in this book. It’s very difficult to manage and makes the lines all funny. Ah there you have it though.
