Work and Progress

3. Sketchbook:2004-05, Long Island

In the Summer of 2004 We moved out of the city to a nice part of Long Island, Oakdale!. A College friend of ours, generously took us in for a year to save money and concentrate on Emilio. During this time I still worked in the city so I took the Long Island Railroad 3 hrs a day 5 times a week for a year. This sketch book is a result of drawing on the train.

I sketched quick when people were awake.

One time a passenger noticed me drawing them and got up and changed seats. This made me feel bad so I started to draw shoes.

The Davinci Code, on the way home.

This was during the time that the Divinci Code book came out and everyone was reading it (I’ve never read it).  I would see at least 3-4 people  at a time reading the book while I took the train.

I often work from photographs and I try to and stay conscious of the their (the photo) purpose when I’m making art.
