Issue Six of the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine Art & Literary Review contains reproductions of two of my drawings. You all have seen them before – the old man in Penn Station who keeps falling asleep while he has his morning coffee.

Every page is filled with essays, poetry, photographs and artwork created by members of the medical school or Northwell Health. Th front cover – someone else’s drawing.

This is the back cover, an iPad drawing.

And this is an ink drawing on a napkin which is collaged on a gelli printed moleskin spread.

Gridded notebook and Pencil/Pitt fine pen, photographed using iPad and then imported into Sketch Club for color (ArtRage used for texture only). iPad; New Trent Arcadia stylus.

While I was in the Salmagundi Club last April someone told me about drawing on a plexiglass plate using a lithography crayon and running it through the press. When I returned in May, after 7 hours of printing JKPP Monotype portraits and
Penn Station commuters and just before starting the cleanup and packing up of artwork, I decided to do two quickies using the litho crayon and small square plexi plates. Easy peasy no mess or fuss or angst – just a straightforward process suited for a very tired printer.
