Welcome to my blog! In this post I will be talking about my latest urban landscape painting. 

On my birthday in March I took a trip out to Astoria to check out the Mad Men exhibit at The Museum of Moving Image. It was incredible seeing the props and costumes from my favorite period drama. (Especially since it ends on Sunday.) Before I left I took a reference photo of the exterior and later turned it into a painting. I’m experimenting with a new style that merges geometric cartooning and abstract painting’s wide brush strokes. Art created in Sketchbook Pro for iPad.
