A Week In Pictures

I started a new job last week, full time with benefits, the stuff an artist’s dreams are made of. It’s funny but things that went from bad to worse all year long are now spinning in full speed in the opposite direction. Things are going from great to fantastic to fantastically great. Along with the theme of the week I discovered Washington Square park on one of my lunchtime jaunts last week. Now I spend most days there drawing during lunch or after I punch out. It’s about the best thing ever.


Most kids are easy to call. They’re either New Yorker kids or tourist kids. Tourist kids are always freaked to death by the squirrels.

The Summer blockbusters have arrived. I can tell it will be essential to see movies on opening weekend if I intend to continue drawing kids in the park. They love spoiling the plots. These soaked girls were playing at being Jean Grey back from the dead.
After a week of drawing this one’s my favorite. She looked and acted like I do so of course she was the coolest kid on the block. Now, if only the drawing of her chasing the mean boys away from the pigeons they were terrorizing had turned out better. . .

Pointer Sisters kinda night🔥 We’ve been ignoring this sweet potato, but he will not be ignored. 🌱☀️🧡🌈
#lifelessons #bloomnomatterwhat Five years ago, I walked into a cozy Brooklyn bar and met the sweetest boy a girl could ever hope to meet. Tonight he made us the sweetest cake to celebrate.❤️ ❤️ I wish today was a Bill Murray kind of Groundhog Day, I’d be in Mexico toasting these love birds. 😭😭😭 #happyanniversary to @happilyeveralvarez & @alvar529 AND happy one year anniversary of New Sister Day to me & @prillie_shakazuzu. We’re so lucky Ashton got us Heather. 😘 High Tea B-Day was at least 1000% better than these pics. 😍💛😭⭐️🍰
#andstillbirthdayweekrageson #letshearitfortheboy #👋☕️ Matt’s Grandfather, passed away peacefully at 93 this week. I am glad for the chance I had to know him. He was great. Matt insanely invited me to a four-generation Father’s Day brunch at his parent’s place when we’d been dating a month and a half. Grandpa Volpe’s first question? He wanted to know my intentions. Here he is at our wedding last year. 💛 He was a true original & he will be so missed. I believe. ❄️✨🎄🎅🏻
