I have recently been to the Jersey shore to relax. While I was there I made a series of drawings of people hanging out on the beach. Some of them are quite funny. You will see me begin to post a lot of them beginning today. They will remind you of your own experiences sitting for hours on a beach somewhere. In the rest of my paintings, not everyone will be as attractive as Emma in this sketch.

I have always had a certain fascination with the Samurai fighting masks displayed in the Met. One time when I was there drawing with people, I spotted this sucker. There was not enough time for me to do it, so I vowed to come back one day and get it done. Here is proof. I think museums should allow people to try on the costumes that are on display. This would greatly increase museums bottom lines in this photo taking generation. Plus, one could feel what it was like to wear Henry the 8th's armour around. I'd walk to the men's room to figure out how Henry took a pee with it on.

Everyone by now knows of my obsession with ice cream trucks. In New Orleans they have trucks that go around selling ices. A bit weird but makes sense if you eat one in hundred degree weather. They must be in more states than Louisiana. I've never seen one up north. Now in Brooklyn, we have old ladies who go to the parks with a little 3 wheeled cart selling Italian ices. Soon I will draw one to show you.

Here is my second bike drawing. I spotted this classic near a subway stop in Brooklyn. As I was doing this someone came by and took my photo, she told me she was a designer. When I was done, I left a note in the basket of the bicycle. I told the owner they could see my drawing of the bike on my Instagram account. An e-mail arrived later in the day. The owner was quite pleased. I think they were more excited about getting a groovy note on one of my business cards, than the actual drawing itself. He too, was a designer who works at a great Interactive agency in Manhattan. It is a requirement that you have to be a designer to live in Brooklyn.
