Here in New York we get to see some of the same talent on the subway platforms and/or trains. Obviously some are better than others so you get to have some favorites. Here is one of mine. I've started to film people whenever I actually like them because it has happened that I really liked someone and then I NEVER had the luck to run into them again.
I created these probably about a year ago, and finally got around to printing them... and they look amazing.
I'm going to turn them into a big painting with multiple color variations, and some I will make in big canvases.
On other news... I got to hang around one of my favorite people in the world. My long lost bestie Elias, who left the Manhattan to go find professional success in marketing for a cosmetics company in the southwest. Good times.
Life in NYC can get extremely busy, and before you know it you have waaaaay too many responsibilities and time commitments to even realize the beauty and wonderful opportunities that are around us.
In that sense, I do like getting to meet some ot the transient population of NY (the people that come for an internship and have an expiration date as to how long they'll be here for). They always seem so excited about everything and everything they do and everywhere they go is "the coolest ever".
On the other hand however, I can find those people to be extremely annoying because they seem to not be aware what the reality is in terms of what making an actual life happen in NYC requires of you, and they always question why you aren't doing all these "amazing things" (to which I answer in my head "it's called I ave a real life, and i'm not just sitting there blowing through my or my parents money")..
In any case, I do try to keep the magic alive, and to take in as much of New York City as i can, and as often as I can.
Sometimes this just means a 5 minutes of sitting out at central park, but hey! at least its better than nothing ;) So here are a fe images from the last few days. I'll be sharing what i can, as often as possible ;)
