Yoga Birthday

Our yoga instructor at Yoga Union, Lou, is turning 31. Happy birthday! (Note: I haven't attempted any of these poses. Maybe next class...)

Clif and A.A. Bondy

'Nother drawing of Clif. I will be doing more, I think. This one came out a little squished but I still like it.

I found a drawing I did a few weeks ago of A.A. Bondy when I was listening to his music at my desk. He sounds kinda sad, I want to give him a bowl of soup or something.

Not related, but I have been drinking chocolate milk like it is going out of style. 


A drawing from a photo of David eating a malt at Creole Creamery in New Orleans, May 2011. That arm looks weirdly small now that I've posted it.

Listening to: Otis Redding "You Don't Miss Your Water"

Clifton Hicks

This past weekend I went out to the Brooklyn Folk Fest and saw some really great musical performances by a bunch of talented folks. (I need to get out to Jalopy more. You should check them out, too if you haven't yet). At the folk fest, I had the opportunity to meet and chat with Clifton Hicks, who is an incredibly talented and down to earth guy. I am working on a comic with the lyrics to an old time song he plays called "German War". You can see him play the banjo and sing it here.
The first drawing posted here was done from life... I like it better than the others I did, which were done from photos from the internet.
I'm taking a comics class and it's pretty great; the instructor, Sungyoon Choi, (American Widow) is really smart and subtly funny. Non-fiction comics by ladies, totally awesome.
So, I better go get to work!
