Lunch with Andy

I did this drawing last year when my best friend Andy and I met for lunch. I think everyone deserves an Andy in their lives… Someone who is positive, giving, helpful…and always there to cheer you on. I have two Andies in my life…my brother and my best friend. They are remarkable beings. Go out there and find an Andy…the name should be a verb. Go out and Andy someone today.

To All the great Andy’s out there…Thank you!

Paris, France, thinking insomniac, vernelle noel

Architecture Sketch (2005) - Paris, France

I did this sketch of the Louvre Museum in Summer of 2005 during my back-packing adventure through Europe. This was done on my last day in Paris, before returning to the US. On this day, we did whatever we wanted to. I went to the park in front of the Louvre (Jardin des Tuileries). I pulled a chair, sat below a tree, sketched, fell asleep, had a snack, and fell asleep again. Ahhhh.. Like my uncle would say, “It was two-derful!

Jardin des Tuileries - Paris, France (View from my chair)

That evening Paris was alive with music. There were bands playing everywhere, street performances, spectators, the city was ALIVE! This is happiness I thought, and felt. That night my friends and I went to the Eiffel Tower to take in the celebrations there. CRAZY!!! Crazy fun that is! We had a ball. But there were problems with the trains that night… Throngs of people were out in the city, and at the Eiffel Tower…either way, we got stranded. We boarded a train that stopped at a certain point and wasn’t going any further, and everyone had to get out. We walked from wherever that was back to our hotel rooms and crashed. A great end to a great trip!

I had a fantastic day..and the memories always make me smile and long for that adventure again.  I will one day again. Here’s to my EuroTrip Crew (RB, EP, JH, JG, and GM)!

Design Sketch

Above is a sketch I did as part of a design study and exploration I did while in India. I am always looking at space, composition, and dialogue between the diametrically opposed. The ying and the yang, dark and light, rough and smooth, compressed and expanded, grid and curve. These conversations when brought together harmoniously, strengthens each other, and makes each element rise to the occasion.

Again, to our friends and colleagues in Japan, you are in our thoughts.
