Hello and welcome to my sketch-blog. This seemingly self-indulgent exercise is where I intend to post the doodles, sketches, and occasionally more finished pieces of artwork to, if my insecurities are correct, an apathetic if not imaginary audience.

A Little Slice

I was fortunate enough to spend some of the holidays in Manhattan with my daughter. It was my first trip to the city at Christmas time. The buzz and crowds of busy tourist and shoppers was intoxicating. A far cry from the little snow covered village I call home.

Like all tourists to NYC at that time of year, we hit all the traditional spots including the various window displays at the iconic Macy's, Times Square (with ball dropping preparations seemingly complete), The tree and rink at 30 Rock, with of course a few moments to admire the wonderful murals by Josep Maria Sert in the grand lobby.

We also managed to drop by the Society Of Illustrators building on E 63rd street. The permanent work on the walls and the current show of society members was very inspiring. The respect for illustration of all kinds does my heart good. My time there was sadly too brief.

So it's with that taste of the Big Apple still lingering, that I look forward to tackling the known and unknown of 2011. Lets hope my little slice of apple can sustain me until I return again.
