Hi there my friends,
We are in New York City. Internet in the hotel is slow,
so we slipped across the street to Starbucks where it's crazy fast.
I'll post a little iPad drawing today, and perhaps some sketches
tomorrow. We head to the MoMA in minutes. There are cities that feel
like home right away. Perhaps I'm a New Yorker at heart -- because this is
one of them.
The Halal Guys -- a million dollar business in NYC and is it good!
Last night exhausted from prepping for the trip, and from a long spate
of working24/7 we decided to get food from the street vendor near
the hotel. Delicious and enough food to feed a family of four.
There's always a line up -- sometimes for a block. People come straight
from the airport in limos to pick up dinner. It's wild.
Times Square in the rain last night
People snapping photos late at night in the rain.
That's Times Square. Always hopping.
Times Square. So much fun. Forever 21 on the square is open
until 2 a.m., and even in the rain there were people snapping
photos of themselves. The square's giant, vibrant billboards and ads
are always striking.
Amazing architecture everywhere you turn.
New York keeps its heritage. A key lesson
for cities like Toronto.
Tell you more tomorrow. What a charge watching
Stephen Colbert interview Vogue Editor Anna Wintour last night
about a show opening at the MoMA today, and knowing we were
a block away and heading over to the show the minute it
My own opening is tonight at the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery.
Photos later. Oops better charge my camera. As for me.
Charged full time.
Have an acting-like-a-joyous-tourist-wherever-you-are day.
