Radio Controlled Pet In Manhattan

Last year, we spent about 4 weeks in NYC. I've done a lot of sketching there, at places like Central Park, Bryant Park and Union Square... Bryant Park by the way I liked best regarding sketching around, watching people and stuff.

That summer, we also had the joy to meet up with Tina Roth Eisenberg in her studio in Brooklyn. I still owe her a swiss-miss-branded duck. Which is so very nearly finished since last year, only the final clean-up is missing...
