Stop Thinking

My book is selling briskly and doing very well in Europe. Yet a lot of people I know are still procrastinating. They say, "I intent to buy it" or "it's on my list of things to do." Then of course, there is the old, "I won't buy it unless I get an autographed one." Basically that is like saying, "I don't really want to get one." So after drawing my ass off on the streets of the world for 8 years, I would at least hope that people I know would at least buy the stupid thing. I expect all my relatives (and I have hundreds of them), all my childhood friends, every kid I went to grammar school with, all my college friends, all my past coworkers and every freak I hung out with in the East Village the past 30 years TO BUY THE BOOK NOW. No more waiting. Look, it only cost 30 bucks. You will not be disappointed. I assure you. So click on the link and BUY. Today. Bookdepository.com. In Europe, Waterstones.

Trigger Happy

My friend, Frank Gilroy has a new kindle single out on Amazon. It's called Trigger Happy. It's only $1.99 and you can read it in 2 or 3 sittings. A fun and clever ride if you want something quick to read from a master storyteller.

How It's Done

Here is a quick little 2 minute demonstration of me drawing on the street. I'm sitting on a park bench in a little park. This takes place in London. My good friend George Hage is filming me. None of the people I am drawing are aware of what I am up to. I do the drawing very clandestinely. Drawing people is tough because they are always fidgeting, moving and sometimes they just get up and leave. So I work quickly. This is how a lot of the drawings in my new book get done. I just want to mention once again, if you want my new book right away, you have to order it from bookdepository.com. So cancel your Amazon order. That one may take a few months before it ships. My publisher is working on the situation. I will make an announcement when that is fixed. Also you can get it in Europe at Waterstones.

Gross Perspective

I've written before about Alex Gross, the best painter in America. See above examples. Here is what he said about my new book. "It's fantastic! I am always impressed by good sketchbook drawers/ life observers/ obsessive compulsive's. Its just a beautiful book. I am also going to buy a book for my mom, who is also an artist and who I think will really dig it." Look, if the greatest painter in America is buying one for his mom, then the rest of you people should be doing the same. Plus I got an e-mail from Pratt Institute. It's one of the best art schools in the country. They ordered my book for their library. It's a must see for all college art school students. Immediate delivery anywhere in the world from bookdepository.com or in europe at Waterstones.

Lost Angeles

I recently visited Lost Angeles, California. This time I really enjoyed myself. I was there visiting artists, Darcy Leslie and Danny Gregory. Darcy was my first roommate in New York when I moved there in the 80's. Seems that Darcy has been taking painting lessons for a few years and her work blew me away. I haven't been to LA in many decades. So this was my first encounter with what she has been up to. Darcy in real life is an owner of a great visual effects company in Venice, Brewster Parsons. She is one of the people I thanked in my new book. I consider her family.
