Butch and I went out drawing the other day. He helped me bring some stuff to
my new apartment in Brooklyn. It turns out that my new hood is full of great
things to draw. There is some guy named Vincent Russo who puts up signs all
over town. They are all wacky make shift signs announcing, Vincent Russo
notary public. I mean they are everywhere. He seems to be quite a character.
We also went to Red Hook, which is the neighborhood next to my new one. All
the Mexicans play soccer on the weekends in a big park. Vendors set up
stalls and sell fantastic homemade delights from all over South America. We
feasted on cerviche and spicy pork tacos. We were in heaven. The bad news is
I think the city is trying to shut them down. Read about it here.
