This is the kind of sketch result I love to achieve. Sitting in a small hotel room on 11th St. in Greenwich Village recovering from a morning of strenuous walking, but not tired for a nap… look out the window and pick up my pens and Canson 5 × 8 sketchbook. This eclectic view reminds me of the vibrancy and lives within the everyday of NYC.
In late 2004 I see that the “FROM LIFE” group has selected this sketch for their ‘avatar’… very honored!

The 1rst TAG takes you to James’ Favorite works from all his RB sites!

A persona who has apparently lived a relatively long, varied and eclectic life. My Red Bubble portfolios reflect my seeming persona… and IF there’s any veracity to these reflections then some sense of HUMOUR and enjoyment should be PRESENT!
