New Yorkers & Co.

In January, I went on a five-day trip to New York City to gather reference with the Godfather team. Yes, this is three months after the fact but here are the sketchbook pages I drew while either in New York or going to/from. I unfortunately never had time to sit down and draw a cityscape there... most of these drawings were done while waiting for coworkers to arrive for a meetup. Or at a bar. Or a bar meetup.

Above: This was done at a bar in West Village called Marie's Crisis Cafe. A lot of professional and aspiring singers go there to belt out showtunes all night. Karla Ortiz and I got to sit right next to the pianist because the performers enjoyed our drawings. Karla wound up giving her sketchbook pages to the musicians.
