Back in the late ’60s, my Dad and a friend pulled up in the alley in a rented van. Inside, was his old drawing table from work that he picked up for $10. His company was remodling the office and that included a new drafting table. More
There comes a time in the life of the lesser known artist when he must destroy old work. This does not come easy. He will be reminded by others that they are “his children” and maybe he should repurpose the art. If one has the time, space and motivation to do this, great! However, I do not have that luxury. More
Since the last time I posted new work on this site, I’ve created some more alley drawings and a couple of drawings that were inspired by my recent trip to New York.
I also have a piece in each of the following shows:

Here are the latest alley drawings. I’m looking forward to doing some exploring in the next few weeks. Gotta focus more on the south side for a bit. There are a lot of alleyways out there, including the suburbs.
Also, if you’d like me to draw your alley, let me know. I can also do a portrait of your alley featuring your garage; maybe with your antique car sticking out? Something to think about.
