  1. Rosé

    17 Dec 2017
    While in Paris I frequented a small restaurant called Tabac D’Orsay. The service was good and they were more than willing to speak English. Although I think it helped that I greeted everyone in French as much as possible. Tabac was near Musee D’Orsay so I could easily grab an…

  2. Byron Burger and Fries

    08 Dec 2017
    Thankfully I chose a Eurostar train later in the day so I could have a farewell lunch with some of my London friends. We went to a burger joint called Byron Burger and it was pretty great. I love trying new foods but at the end of the day if…

  3. Don’t Touch My Soul (Solange Painting)

    07 Dec 2017
    One night I was out at Rudy’s in New Haven and I ran into a friend of mine. He told me about an exciting new art show that I had to get involved with. Over the next few days I received the details on the event. The show was based…

  4. French Toast

    05 Dec 2017
    The morning of my last day in London was bittersweet so I knew I had to get a delicious breakfast to balance things out. I stopped at a fancy restaurant called Bronte. I sat at the pristine looking bar and ordered French Toast. As soon as it came I knew…

  5. Chicken Burger (Mayflower Pub)

    08 Nov 2017
    One of the most significant things about my trip to London was that my Mom had been there years ago when she was a teenager. I was far from home but as a result I felt closer to her because of this new, shared experience. Using WhatsApp I easily shared…

  6. Garlic Bread

    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…

  7. Chicken Club

    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…

  8. Pasta

    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…

  9. Fish and Chips

    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…

  10. Pato Taquito

    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…
