NYC nostalgia

I'm getting nostalgic for NYC. My Uncle bill and his wife Nadine just got back from there with a host of amazing photos. Looking through some sketches I found this one from 2005. 8 views of the city. This is an exercise I often do with my students and is often one of the favorite assignments of the semester. 
hand drawn polaroids, I suppose.

9th street espresso post cards - gift set

A good friend gave us our favorite NYC coffee, 9th Street Espresso, as a gift. After finishing the first of two bags off, it was subsequently turned into a "re-gift" with a sketchy twist...

Coffee sketch again...

Out of Postcards, baker paper was all that was at hand. Loved the response to the water...Gift to Katy and Chris at the Bakery.

I have been absent for a bit from the blog as I have been gearing up to go live with this new site/venture: . Give it a look and see the broad range of architecturally centric explorations that are occurring! Meanwhile I hope to be uploading more sketches, coffee and the days of summer unfold.
