Been fascinated with flies for some time now. Such low lifes. But in their minds, death and decay is so irresistible.

Camper and Tweedy show

I’ve been playing around with tree-hugger imagery such as this; emphasizing textures and silhousettes.
A couple nights ago I caught Jeff Tweedy perform in Tribeca with my brother/invisibleman/superpal Jamie. Percussionist and wilco drummer Glenn Kotche opened the show and joined Mr. Tweedy and Jim O’Rourke for a short encore set (those 3 form the band/sideproject Loose Fur). They played a tune about a crack-smoking, sidewalk-surfing messiah and it was an all around amazing show.

A follow up here to Keegan’s post… it was beers, bongos and bohemia on east 63rd st. Being the mecca for illustrators, its an inspiring place to hang out.

The Cop and the Model

Tonight fellow Invisibleman PA and I hoofed it up to East 63rd and Lexington to the Society of Illustrators to attend one of their storied Tuesday night drawing sessions. It’s quite a cool scene there, though it may be a bit shocking for those used to more serene drawing environments. Grab a cold beer or a glass of wine from the raucous bar, then grab a chair and start drawing. There is always live music, and we’ve read reports of burlesque dancers as life models. One red feather boa was about as burlesque as it got, but both models were excellent and looked quite nice posing against the original artworks of some of the greatest illustrators in American history (NC Wyeth, LC Leyendecker, Norman Rockwell, et al). Drawing is every Tuesday night from 6:30 – 9:30, $15 at the door. There is also a session on the third Thursday of every month as well.
So on the right, I’ve posted a small sketch, done in the last 2 minutes of the evening, which I kind of like the most. And on the left, we have a rotund and jolly police officer, which is a sketch from my moleskine (further work done in the Lab), drawn from a picture i snagged somewhere on the web.
Why are they together? What’s the story between them? Is she whispering something in his ear that’s making him smile?
Click on the photo for a larger image of the cop. Sorry, no more of the lady to see.

Found Photo

This is a found photograph I picked up on a curb in Long Island City. Good condition too.
We get a free glimpse of lost progeny. Or at least a lost photograph. I was drawn to this one because the girl looks so undecided.
