My Subway Sketches in Canadian Transit Stations
Here’s some photos from the “Drawing the Line: Artists Drawing in Transit” digital exhibit I was part of earlier this year in Toronto, Edmonton and Calgary, Canada. I didn’t have a chance to visit in person, so it’s great to see these!
I’ll try to do a post soon featuring the original images that were included in the show, a sort of “best of” my transit sketches over a few years.
Moleskine City Stories at Columbus Circle, May 17
As part of Moleskine’s new City Stories partnership with Urban Sketchers, I’ll be at the Columbus Circle Moleskine Store from 10am-6pm on Saturday, May 17, demoing, answering questions, and encouraging people to sketch. I’ll also lead a “learning session” at 4pm.
Come by to sketch, or just to say hi! (There’s some instructions to follow on their site if you want a free sketchbook.)
I’m proud to be representing Urban Sketchers alongside Suma CM at Columbus Circle, and Richard Alomar and Josiah Hanchett who will be down at the Soho Moleskine Store. (Also, big thanks to Elizabeth Alley, who organized this for Urban Sketchers!)
From March 3-April 16, six of my NYC public transit sketches are on display in Canada, on digital billboards in the Toronto, Edmonton and Calgary transit systems, as part of “Drawing the Line: Artists Drawing in Transit.”
I am one of 13 sketchers (and 6 New Yorkers!) in the exhibition, and I am in very good company. Let’s hope we can inspire more people to sketch in the cities where the show is!

East Brooklyn, After Snow, Before More Snow
A few weeks back, Dave Mandl invited me to accompany him on a jaunt out to Eastern Brooklyn, to see what we could find. Dave found a bunch of great photographs, and I found these two sketches:
“In the same time it takes an average Instagram user to choose between the Mayfair and Lo-Fi filters, Brooklyn artist Jason Das can sketch a portrait.”
