"Smile you're beautiful" someone painted on the side of the building, but with a cold wind hurrying you into winter and a scarf and hat and sunglasses hiding your face, why would a smile be any indication of something that was already all around you, stacked in cardboard fruit boxes, inscribed on a canvas awning, or cluttered on a dusty balcony, visible only if you should choose to see it.

I drew from the 20K mark of the New York City Marathon today. That’s twelve and a half miles for those of you keeping track at home. The runners were mostly gone by the time I finshed. Two boroughs down. Three boroughs to go. #DrawNYC #urbansketchers #nycmarathon #tcsnycmarathon #greenpointers #manhattanave #miltonst #stanthonystalphonsus #dailydrawing #penandink #baronfig #brooklyn #tothefiveboroughs
I woke up this morning and installed a 900 foot long mural at the Manhattan end of the Williamsburg Bridge. Thanks to @lindseyefisher for art direction and inspiration. Thanks to the amazing volunteers from @nycares and @jpmorgan who painted the whole thing. Thanks to @nyc_dotart for the opportunity to collaborate and their continued support of public art. Feeling grateful.

I've been saving this one for a rainy day. The Comedy Cellar, workshop and proving ground for comedians both famous and unknown, has been down below MacDougal Street's Olive Tree Cafe since 1982. The original drawing is headed to the home of a good friend and aspiring standup comedian. #DrawNYC #urbansketchers #GreenwichVillage #SoHo #ComedyCellar #OliveTreeCafe #TheVillage #MacDougalStreet #usk #inkdrawing #standupcomedy #nyc #inktober
We could go some place where no one will find us. Past the tracks that mark the edge of town. Beside the tumble-down barn and the cottonwood grove. Halfway between the dirt road and the river. We could sit down on the dock and kick off our shoes. Feel the sun on our feet and faces. Watch the wind blow leaves across the pond, the water still high from late September rain. #DrawKS #urbansketchers #ruralsketchers #Mulvane #NoPlaceLikeKS #inktober #instapoetry #instablackandwhite

My dad and I went to draw today in Mulvane. We pushed past the overgrown grass where the street ended, four dogs barking behind a chain link fence. A train was standing still a quarter mile away, so we crossed over the tracks and passed under the railroad bridge. We stood there over an hour. Me drawing, dad reading a book. Sun casting deep shadows under the plate girders and wood piers. Train idling in the distance, hawk circling silently overhead. We were about to leave when we heard a low rumble. We waited to watch another train cross the tracks above our heads, going south or maybe west, matching the path of the afternoon sun. #DrawKS #urbansketchers #Kansas #NoPlaceLikeKS #KSBucketList #Mulvane #bridgehunter #sketchwalker #sketch_onn #globalsketchers #archilovers #inkdrawing #inktober

I took the long way home through the Flint Hills yesterday. It was one of those incomparable Kansas days, slight chill in the air, hills gilded with prairie grass, clouds stretched across a canvas of endless sky. I stopped in Cottonwood Falls to draw the Chase County Courthouse. It was built in 1871 from limestone quarried just outside of town and walnut trees cut by the Cottonwood River. The courthouse looks as good as new, and it’s been in use since the day it was built. You can see the 113 foot tall steeple from almost anywhere in Chase County. #DrawKS #urbansketchers #Kansas #NoPlaceLikeKS #KSBucketList #CottonwoodFalls #FlintHills #sketchwalker #sketch_onn #globalsketchers #archilovers

When you only have a few hours in Kansas City, drawing a bridge in the West Bottoms is the sensible thing to do. .
