This year, I decided to properly use (I mean, really use) my sketchbook everyday and it's been a really great learning experience. Somehow treating the pages like a playful exercise (like most of us did as teenagers) removed a lot of anxiety. In other words, drawing is fun again!

Midtown East brings so many vivid memories. I used to walk these streets at four thirty in the morning,
when barely any soul would be awake and the snowflakes would pile up on the sidewalk.
But of course, these memories are tinted by the thick veil of nostalgia.

The Financial District Phantom (detail), 2015

On the Smoke Series:

For a while, I couldn't reconcile how different the city was according to whatever time the clock dictated - so drastically different.

I learned to love the odd hours, the early mornings (earlier than the coffee carts and newsstands had even opened); the afternoons before the second cup of coffee is consumed; the late-but-not-that-late moments of the night (before the ant-like trickle of patrons from nearly-closed bars); the instances where unimaginable things would happen and they would go unnoticed, unwitnessed, or simply accepted in the overall aura of surrealism (or absurdity) that all New Yorkers have learned to accept as this city's reality.
