(This is going to be another three-parter)
Monday morning, the 29th, I was meeting Gwen, Phil and Maya in front of KABOOZ at 9:30. They are from North Carolina. Maya is nine, this is her first time in NYC and we – includes Shirley, Teri, Benedicte and I – are, time permitting, going where she wants. This morning it was the American Museum of Natural History. After lunch the garment district but Teri is going back to work and Benedicte, Shirley and I are going elsewhere.
Since I was early I sat down in the Penn Station waiting room with the intention of reading a book that is living in the iTouch. I didn’t feel like drawing and fully expected that would be my theme for the day.
Before I realized it I found myself sketching the negative space around the two people opposite me.
Negative space turned out to be my theme in actuality and I sketched all day, everywhere exclusively on the tiny device
I headed up to the meeting place but where are they? I usually see them waiting for me
This guy worked at Hudson Books, near KABOOZ, and his job was to stand outside and guard the magazines.
And then, here they come, needing a big New York pretzel.
