Brooklyn Loft

I  had a chance to work on a great loft in Brooklyn. Micah Finkel who was the contractor brought me in, micah's web  after micah constructed a pillar in the corner of the room my job was to faux paint it to match the original weathered paint. I also worked on various ceiling area's and pillar's through out the loft that needed to be softened or changed to the owner's taste but the main objective was to have it not look like I did anything! it needed to be based on the old feel of the building. I learned how to do this by working for micah's mom Risa who has a strong love and respect for old or antique environments that have a story to tell.

wedding invitation's for joanna and chris

My niece Joanna is getting married in montauk, new york and she asked me to do some pen and ink drawings to be printed on the wedding invitation's.On the inside of the envelope Joanna and i came up with the map idea of landmarks you would see driving out, if you know the stretch between amaganset and into the town of montauk you pass the "lunch" sign (which is really the lobster roll) and it is also the sign that reminds you that you will be out of the car soon and the beach is near. My friends and i used to hitch up and down that stretch.The wedding is in october and it will be a good time for sure.
