  1. Garlic Bread

    Date 08 Nov 2017
    The companions to my Chicken Club sandwich were two pieces of buttery Garlic Bread. I enjoyed painting this piece because I got to experiment in Procreate with textures. Like I stated before this series is all about merging my cartooning and oil painting backgrounds. Art created using Procreate on iPad Pro…

  2. Chicken Club

    Date 08 Nov 2017
    Before making it to The London Eye I stopped in to grab some food at a nearby pub. There were a lot of different options in terms of food but “bar food” was typically my mainstay while I was there. I ordered a chicken club on a sourdough roll with…

  3. Pasta

    Date 30 Oct 2017
    After exploring Hampton Court Palace for the better part of the day I went to a nearby pub for a late lunch. I ordered a Pasta with eggplant, lime and beef to fill up after walking through all of those royal chambers.  This painting was very deceptive because I believed…

  4. Fish and Chips

    Date 17 Oct 2017
    It was Canada Day and I was in London enjoying some art museums. To get away from the crowds I went to a restaurant in Westminster. I knew I had to get some authentic Fish in Chips while in the UK so today was perfect to check that off my…

  5. Pato Taquito

    Date 17 Oct 2017
    I’m starting a new series on the meals I enjoyed in Europe over the summer. While in London my friends introduced me to a chill, Spanish restaurant in Bloomsbury. The main course (Super Nachos) was very good but it was actually the appetizer that stood out to me. I glanced…

  6. Event Recap: Bronx Native

    Date 09 Oct 2017
    On Sunday I attended an event hosted by my friend and fellow dandy, Diego Leon aka Dandy in The Bronx. It was a pop up store event for Bronx based brand “The Bronx Native”. I was on hand to showcase my iPad painting talents and to support my fellow creatives…

  7. Barcelona: Arc de Triomf

    Date 13 Sep 2017
    After getting to know the Navas neighborhood in Barcelona I walked to Passeig Sant Joan to see The Arc de Triomf. I was fascinated by the arc because there is an Arc de Triomphe in Place Charles de Gaulle and there is also the Washington Square Arch. The Arc in Barcelona…

  8. Barcelona: Via Laietana

    Date 08 Sep 2017
    The Gothic Quarter or Barri Gòtic was probably my favorite location in Barcelona. (La Barceloneta is a close second) It’s the center of Barcelona’s “old town” and stretches from La Rambla to Via Laietana. I actively avoided La Rambla for a few days because of pickpocket activity (The terrorist attack…

  9. Barcelona: Jazz Sí

    Date 01 Sep 2017
    After walking through Park Güell and hiking to the top of Parc del Carmel I needed to rest my legs. I discovered there was a jazz themed Tapas bar in Tamarit. Ever since I got back from New Orleans last year I’ve had a great appreciation for live jazz. The bar…

  10. Barcelona: Platja de Sant Sebastià

    Date 30 Aug 2017
    When I got to Barcelona, Spain for the tail end of my trip to Europe I knew I had to visit the beach. I spent my first day brushing up on my Spanish and walking around the neighborhood I was staying. (Which was called Navas by the way) The Metro…
