JFK With Cigar and Paper

Here's the finished JFK drawing I posted last week. By the end of the month, you'll be able to buy signed and numbered prints exclusively at the Cigar Stop in Shrewsbury, NJ. In the meantime, you can swing by there to pick up a few cigars and see the original drawing framed and hanging behind the counter. I recommend a CAO Brazilia or Ashton VSG.

For your Friday viewing pleasure, two commission pieces I'm concurrently working on:


June Update

I'm taking a break this week from that Eli Manning painting to do a commissioned piece that needs to be done by the end of the week, but I thought I'd post the last bit of progress I made on it.

Below are some pics of the Boathouse, a great bar in Lambertville, NJ I visited last October and took a few snapshots of. I decided to break up the monotony of doing the highly detailed Manning painting by messing around with a more expressionistic bar scene in between. The first pic is, obviously, the reference photo I took, the second is a color study in marker leaning more on reds, browns, and oranges, the third pic is the beginnings of the work on canvas.
