Woah, my latest piece is more time consuming than others. It will require a couple of shots of coffee. I apologize for the delay.
While we wait for the coffee to be brewed, allow me to introduce my team. They make what I do, and I am ever grateful for their effort.
The main contributors of my work. Fabriano Aquarello watercolor block, hot pressed, 5×7. Mont Blanc fountain pen with Mystery Black ink.
Driving forces in studio. Faber Castell Fine-tip pen. Glass-mate grease pencil.
White cotton gloves to keep me and my work safe. I’ve had to deal with enough smudges to last me a lifetime.
Part-time workers. 6-yr old eraser (old enough to enter kindergarten), mint, pen nib box, and Japanese brush pen. They’re good company, but won’t miss them otherwise.
Stay tuned as my team members work hard to create another caffeinated drawing!

It’s atypical for me to look back on my work after 100 drawings — I’ve gathered to show you, but more importantly, me, how far I’ve come. It started in a small coffee shop in Rhode Island, has traveled to Italy, back to the States, and to South Korea. I didn’t realize how much I grew as an artist when I was drawing, but it is all worthwhile. I’ll continue to draw, where ever I am. Thanks for following and please, keep yourself caffeinated.

Before we start our lives.
I don’t know anyone who has bought those instant coffees.
Because real fire harms our coffee time…?
I don’t know if I’m drinking coffee or drinking an experience.
The people move in and out before you know … them.
