Something familiar in an unfamiliar place

Well fellow bloggers I have left Toronto. I got a sweet job in New York so I packed up and here I am! I can't say it was easy to leave Toronto. For the past few months it has been a wealth of inspiration. The people, the neighborhoods. I love it all. It was very hard to leave it although it made it much easier knowing that I was heading for an amazing city and a job I'm really excited about. So of course I must apologize for the rather large gap in between posts as the last few weeks have been a whirlwind of packing and planning. When I arrived yesterday I felt a little out of sorts (i'm sure the 10 hour drive had something to do with it) and I decided to do something I enjoy to make me feel a little more at home in my new place. So here is a painting I did (sorry for the dark picture, I had to leave my scanner behind) to ease my nerves and I absolutely felt immediately better. Of course the fact that I have perfect strangers playing helps also :)

Anyways I will continue to update my blog regularly. People of Toronto: sleep easy tonight! You are no longer the subject of my sneak attack drawings. NEW YORK RESIDENTS: WATCH OUT

Toronto, you were so kind to me today.

Today I went walking in BEAUTIFUL yorkville. It was so sunny and beautiful. I sat on a bench to just enjoy the weather and not five minutes later this man came by and starting playing the clarinet. It was sooooooooo lovely. I have about 4 pages in my sketchbook now with this guy. AMAZING.

It just had to happen

YES. I have figured it out. Pen + Gouache = Heaven.
This is what I was meant to do.

Will someone PLEASE give Colin Firth (another) Oscar?

I really hope for all of your sakes that you have seen Tom Ford's A Single Man.
Acting at its effing finest. Colin Firth is unbelievable in this movie, I don't know how he didn't get an Oscar.
Not only is Colin Firth scrumtrillescent (a million points if you know where thats from) but Tom Fords directing is perfectly restrained. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I love this movie.
