Drawing completed with film grain placed over it, featuring the talented Barkhad Abdi in Captain Phillips.
Made this piece while watching the impeccable Escape at Dannemora. Ben Stiller is a kickass director and the acting? Amazing. Any description I give won’t do any of the talent justice. As an aside, as a probation officer in New York who goes in and out of prisons all day, all the time- I canContinue reading “Inspired by ‘Escape at Dannemora’”
My first watercolor 🥺 not a medium I use but I wanted a softer feel to this shot of Dylan Penn in ‘Flag Day’ – definitely check the movie out! Gorgeous movie and the cinematography is simply stunning. Based on the book Flim Flam Man by Jennifer Vogel.
Right off the bat I want to say that this isn’t a true crime book about some serial killer from the 1970s that no one remembers. This happened within the last few years.

This was adapted into a Netflix movie but is still very much worth the read, because the movie left out a lot of detail (whichContinue reading “Lost Girls”
I’ve read, watched, researched, written reports and studied cults for years. It’s just one of those things that happens when you go to graduate school at John Jay College. Children of God, Manson Family, Branch Davidians, the People’s Temple, Rajneeshpuram. I’ve absorbed it all. And my overall take is this: groupthink can be a hellContinue reading “The Mean Girls and the Monster”
