From my iPad sketchbook: holidays in NYC, as enjoyed by New Yorkers. Bergdorf Goodman’s holiday windows are intricate works of art that take a full year to create. The theme of this season’s windows was New York cultural institutions. This glamorous window was inspired by the Museum of the Moving Image. This winter season was […]
Two of my commissioned illustrations for Papyrus Greeting’s new African American greeting card line are now available in stores and online – a romantic love greeting card and a child’s birthday card. Both illustrations were painted digitally on my iPad with the Procreate App.

From my travels in Boston this summer. This watercolor print was inspired by a quiet stroll through the Boston Public Garden.

The […]
