New York Interior

A little more than a year ago, I made a trip to NYC to see the John Currin Retrospective at the Whitney. Whenever I'm there in New York, I stay in the East Village. Somewhere down around St. Mark's and Avenue "A", right by Thompkin's Square. That's where the setting for this drawing takes place. I only finished it recently, it's charcoal on strathmore kid finish paper, making for really nice rich blacks.

That drawing has some really awesome atmosphere.

Thanks Jesse. I've enjoyed doing some good-old-fashioned drawing again. It's nice to start and finish a piece in the same day for a change.
