Calligraphy

Posted Aug 2007

Yesterday I did Street Caricatures in NYC. You end up meeting people from all over the world when you do that. My pictures go to Israel, Australia, Germany, Italy, England, Korea, Japan, France, Ireland, Switzerland......

Went to Starbucks today. Drew a plain likeness of a girl there:

When I got home, I tried to exaggerate it more:

Exaggerated again. I think I took it too far?

Hello

Posted Aug 2005

A real Artist's work is always evolving. I never draw the same face twice. After we originally put up the pictures on this website, I wanted to update it often. Finally, years later, TODAY! ON FRIDAY AUGUST 12, 2005, HURRAY! we started this page.

So here's a page that I'll add to whenever I feel like it. SO CHECK BACK OFTEN. I LIKE TO TALK TO YOU.
