Here are some portraits I did in the past couple weeks.
These black and white portraits were all for one person, along with 2 more of her parents.
This portrait was for a woman of her 2 sons. She had me incorporate all the things they like, like robots and sticky rice (too precious). She also wanted to emphasize that they love living in Brooklyn, hence the partial map as a background and the BK bridge.
I thought this portrait of these 2 sisters was hilarious and as well as being a lot of fun to draw.
This is an illustration I did over the weekend for the Vermont independent weekly “Seven Days”. It was for an article about a non-practicing Jewish woman who usually celebrates X-Mas, preparing a Hanukkah meal for the first time, straight out of a cookbook. I just thought it was funny to illustrate something called ‘kugel’.

During September, October and November, I was part of a small, awesome team of freelancers that worked on the “Hippie” themed Barneys’ holiday windows. (Thanks Colleen!) It was a really fun experience, so here are some pictures of the final windows, at the store on 61st and Madison Ave.
Inside the store, a very decoupaged peace sign. Notice the buttoned dove above, done meticulously by Colleen.

Paintings done by kids at the East Harlem School- pretty precious.
About a month ago, Domino Magazine wrote a little blurb about me in an article about “up and coming” portrait artists (Thanks Kate and Allison). It was kind of funny since I didn’t really consider myself a portrait artist, as I would only really ever do portraits for family members and for myself as a way to practice likenesses (and when I was 14 copying portraits of hot celebs and crushes in my sketchbook). In response to the article though, I have gotten a handful of commissions of people wanting portraits done, which is pretty sweet and really fun to do, so I thought I’d post a few.
