Found this talented lady while I was aimlessly clicking through the different Sketchbook Projects submissions.

I love the detail in her pen and ink work.  These characters are so unique, I can almost see them coming to life on each page.  Sasha is from Russia, but has travelled all over the world, honing her craft as an illustrator.

Click here to flip through Sasha’s sketchbook OR you lucky New Yorkers can go see it in person at the Brooklyn Art Library – the exhibit’s only up for 3 more days!

The End.

Roger Then That Was How I Met Roger.

Then I came across this beauty along the walls of his paintings, splattered all over in red like a Ralph Steadman piece.

Red That Was How I Met Roger.

We sifted through panels and panels of large scale artwork until I saw “Credo Quia Absurdum” (I believe because it is absurd) – gritty, scratched, peeling and dripping.

… and “Banana Girl.” I love her.

He handed me a cold beer and invited us in to use his space for some indoor photographs. That was when we saw his paintings, like this one which depicts “what happens to a girl just 6 months after she moves to New York.”

Glitter.

He offered us his guitar to use in our photographs.

Roger.  He had left the old piano outside his apartment for Make Music New York before assholes came by and destroyed it.  Although I think it looks more beautiful.

Roger Appears That Was How I Met Roger.

We went to Brooklyn to take some shots of friend and model, Aiesha, and found a magical street corner with dilapidated furniture and beautiful graffiti.

My cousin Marzia was visiting from Italy with her friends. Her boyfriend, Edoardo, is a photographer.
