Before Summer goes…

Hello Fall!

I’m back from my long, but mostly work vacation in France, and got a new studio in the Upper East Side, New York. I’d lived seven out of ten years in the UES, and I missed this neighborhood so bad, so finally I’m back! And it feels soooooooo good! Hopefully better work and life will be created here? 🙂

So here’s a set of portraits for Billboard Magazine‘s August #26 ‘Fall music preview’ issue. I hope you figure out who’s who.

Many thanks to AD Patrick!

This one was for Atlanta Magazine‘s September issue, and it’s about Pirch. Pirch became my dream shop ever since I drew this piece!

Thanks AD Tara!

And this photo I got from AD Len from Nautilus Magazine! I’m glad to see they were enjoying my book!

One copy of this books was at last week’s NY Art Book Fair at the MoMA PS1, and was on a Desert Island‘s table! And surprisingly, I heard from Gabe it was sold in 30 min!

I’m glad and wondering who bought my book so quick, so please let me know if you are the one! 🙂

And lastly, here’s my work up on Rockaway’s Bathhouse at Riis Park. Thanks for the nice photos and hope people enjoy there like the same as my work!

Thanks for reading! 🙂
