For the Gallery Nucleus Star Wars Tribute show, opening this Saturday May the 4th (Be with You). I can never repay George Lucas for what Star Wars gave me. Star Wars is so close to my heart, I honestly couldn’t decide what image to make for this show, it was just all too important. So I just decided to draw everything… from memory.
“Let Me Leave You Breathless” is the last catalogue out of four. It’s based entirely on personal ads on Craigslist, featuring such characters as “formless dreamer with contradictory compositional constraints” and “cuddle bunny 33” among others.
My MFA thesis is completed(!) and I’ll be posted some of my favorite pieces here over the next week starting with this one. I did a series of illustrations inspired by found notes and compiled them into a book. The exhibition opens today and the reception is Tuesday, May 7th. 6-8pm 601 West 26th St. 15th floor, NY 10001

I “inntertubed” or interviewed the puntastic Sarah Klinger about her work:
1. How did you get here? “Here” being NY and this program, but also
how you’re drawing or working now.It’s funny, I studied French and psychology, dreamed of a career in viticulture or entomology and…
my friend sarah! read about how interesting she is. :-)

In the MFA Illustration as Visual Essay program at SVA, it’s a tradition that the graduating students draw portraits of each other for our thesis show invite. I got to draw my friend Molly Brooks.
Look at that friendly smile. THAT’S a face you can trust.
I only learned how to use Photoshop last year, so this was a great project to cut my teeth on when it came to drawing skin texture, hair, & using spot color.
it’s me! :-D

(but remember! best pencil sharpener is a knife bc the torque of twisty sharpeners breaks the graphite into tiny pieces all down the pencil)
