Did some evening drawing in Central Park, NYC with my fiance while he played guitar next to me. Looking at Belvedere Castle brought back so many memories, as I used to actually take art classes as a child, in the castle!
It was a lovely evening and I actually like this sketch so far; I think I might finish it.

I like making art w/pixels as well as with paint &lt;3.
Love this shot I took &amp; just finished the final retouching for my clients. Such a beautiful and happy couple – I wish them all the best with their new family!
Special Thanks to Jes Perilla for being a great assistant at the shoot!

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you all have a great one, with the people you love.
In honor of the holiday and all the outdoor festivities, I thought I would share a photo I took in Central Park recently, in the Shakespeare Garden.

It’s not often that I draw cartoons, but I promised some friends I’d create a special portrait of their little girls, and because they love Mickey’s Clubhouse, I thought I’d incorporate some familiar characters, like Minnie Mouse. :)

I’m really enjoying it and even made a mini speed-drawing of it <3

MLK Postcards for my Tribute Participants

Finally making postcards for my MLK tribute project participants :)

57 people + 50 postcards = a lot of work, but so worth it — Thank You to everyone who was part of it and check out the art & video at www.IHaveADream2013.com

Women’s History Month is upon us again, and to honor the achievement of woman, NoMAA is curating its annual “Women in the Heights” exhibition, where I have been chosen to debut the REVAMPED & FINAL version of my “I Have a Dream 2013″ painting! The video will also be played at the show.

Since the painting’s premiere during MLK’s “I Have A Dream” 50th anniversary last year, I put in another 15+ hours last month (added to the over 100 hours I had already spent) to make sure all 57 people finally have a portrait. This is the first time everyone will get to see the revised and completed piece, and I am so excited to be able to share this with you all at this amazing venue!

The exhibit is FREE to attend and opening night is next Wednesday, March 5, from 6 – 8 pm:

NoMAA Gallery
178 Bennett Avenue, 3rd Floor
New York, NY 10040

Please RSVP to nomaaprog@nomaanyc.org and see more info here. There will also be an Artist Talk on March 19 at 6:30 pm where I will be speaking. I hope to see you all there!

Visit the official IHaveADream2013.com page to see the video, and inspiration behind the project. <3
