Artist Statement

The iSketches are drawn on location using an iPhone application called Brushes. No photo references, no tablets, no brushes to wash: just my finger on the tiny touch screen. Don't even need a proper light: the drawing itself glows in a dark corner. At $4.99, Brushes is a very democratic tool (provided you have an iPhone, sure) and I suspect it'll be to drawing what email was for letter writing. Something is lost, something is gained. I only got an iPhone in February 2009, so all of this is still very new. It all started when I realized I could draw while night-riding in a car. Soon I found myself sketching NY spots that are part of my life. I've lived in the USA for 20 years and I'm still looking at its urban landscape as if I was discovering it for the first time.
