Gracias por el share, @msartgallerylosangeles ! One of my highlights of 2017 was working with Menduiña Schneider Art Gallery in California. If you’re in LA, check them out for what’s going to be a vibrant, warm & exciting 2018!

These pics are from my new favorite museum, the @vamuseum . I’m afraid if I lived in London, I’d just sent up camp there & never leave. It was gallery after gallery of inspiration: the installation of the artwork is meticulous & creative, the melding of contemporary & older art was divine, astute & complimentary, and of course I got to admire it all next to this guy, @brett_f_harvey , who made a beeline for his beloved Giambologna. Thank you, V&A, for reminding us about the breadth & wonder of human creativity.

Some of my favorites from the @national_gallery in London. Be still, my beating heart. This place had a whole room full of my new love, Carlo Crivelli.

Bummed to be back from London but still gobsmacked from all its art inspiration. Pictures of the amazing works at the @britishmuseum . Holy hell. So much classical sculpture (from the Parthenon!) in one place!

Sketched this wonderful Giambologna “River God” bozzetto at the heavenly Victoria & Albert Museum. What a contented time with my best friend @brett_f_harvey . This is graphite on regular paper.

As I begin 2018, I can’t help but fondly remember how @brett_f_harvey ‘s sculpture & my drawing once checked each other out. Happy New Year & cheers to all your creative endeavors!

Throwback to this profile I drew as a demo for a workshop I taught at the wonderful @hillsdalecollege in Spring 2016. I miss the staff, philosophies & students, but am sure their campus is even colder than NYC right now!

Detail from a drypoint etching I did a couple years ago. Dug out some of my old etching supplies yesterday—hope to get some new ones printed in 2018!

One of my favorite things to render in silverpoint is clothing, with all its tiny tucks & seams. That’ll be my big challenge once the holidays are over: finishing the blouse on @vargasagrav ‘s portrait. (This image, meanwhile, is a detail shot from another piece.)

My apologies to any gilders out there: gilding in a place as messy as a sculptor’s studio isn’t ideal, but at least I can do it when push comes to shove in a small space! Come see exactly what I was gilding at @daciagallery ‘s opening tomorrow for their annual holiday Works on Paper show! And thanks to @brett_f_harvey for both sharing his studio & taking this beautiful shot!

There’s a bit of reflective glint obscuring some areas, but rendering an ear & tortoise-shell eyeglasses in silverpoint have me needing some 🍺 right about now!

This detail is from a silverpoint & silverleaf drawing I did of my favorite human. My abuela’s birthday is tomorrow & she only gets better with age: sassier, sweeter (with me at least), still enamored of Chuck Norris (not joking).

I have a recent obsession with old-fashioned scissors. And drawing from imagination is, indeed, terrifying. Silverpoint on gessoed wooden palette. Incomplete, as a lot of gilding will go on this (because I’m a masochist).

Another great video produced by @myaing_projects called “Save Your Art with Archival Art Materials.” It’s shorter & a bit more informal than the previous video, and a bit more universally applicable to any art practice. Click the link in bio to check it out!

Working entirely from imagination. Terrifying but much more stimulating. Silverpoint on the palette you can see me priming in @myaing_projects ‘ video a couple posts back!

This lady will be up tonight for @inliquidart ‘s dynamic Benefit in Philadelphia! Silverpoint on paper. Tried to pull a Steven Assael by using a razor to incise highlights but alas, he alone is the master of that technique!

Graphite drawing on butcher paper to transfer to my prepared panel. Composition was very specific so I wanted to ensure that I could erase & adjust the drawing before making incisions to transfer, then completing the drawing in an inerasable medium: silverpoint! Big challenges on this: lots of gilding & working mostly from imagination.
