Tools


The most important drawing tools of mine are, a certain 3 fingers on my right hand, my tiny brain, my left eye, and I always put my heart into each sketch I do.

Exchange


I was as shocked as anyone else that after Putin gave Trump the soccer ball in Helsinki, he then handed him a copy of my new illustration book. Vlad felt that Donald J is more comfortable with looking at pictures than reading and retaining information. Trump said he "WOOD" love to look at the tremendous drawings. The next day though Don wanted to clarify his statement. Trump now says, "I WOODEN have any difficulties reading the tremendous words of Tommy Kane if I chose to." Trump also stands by his use of the word, "wood", which he says, "paper is made from". "The Fake News will try to twist that to make me look like I don't know what I'm talking about." Trump tweeted today, "a lot of people high up in the art world were very happy with my use of the word, wood. They really were."

Creativity


Yun and I went to the Finger Lakes over the 4th of July week. We stayed at our friends, Ben and Emmy's lake house. I drew what was hanging about. This deer skull was found by his daughter, Gabby, in the woods. She had been recently stung by 2 bees in a 24 hour period. Of course, I discovered a hornet's nest on his boat dock inside an abandoned, plastic owl with the head missing. You know those plastic owls that scare away other birds. Anyway, it made for an interesting urban sketch.

Andy


In the early 1980's, I was going to a movie in the afternoon. Andy Warhol and a friend were on the line in front of me to get their tickets. No one said a word or bugged him at all. That's what it was like in 1980's NYC. Not a camera phone in sight.

Bullhead


This drawing was done on-site at our pal's lake house. This catfish looking creature is called a bullhead. A deceased one washed up on the shore. I drew the houses from a kayak. These homes were not located near each other, I took creative license to move them around. So I had to paddle to find the ones I liked and then angle the kayak in the direction I wanted to draw each. The way I sketch is not so easy. Don't try this at home unless supervised by an adult.

Food


Have we lost touch with how our food is really grown? This city dweller has.
