favorite movie ever? the Pope of Greenwich Village. Then what's with the Blade Runner drawings? Well, I've never done any sketches from 'Pope', so the best I can offer is stuff from my SECOND favorite movie ever...yup...Blade Runner.
Well, ok, maybe my second favorite movie ever is a tie with Chinatown/the Godfather/A Place in the Sun/Paper Moon/A Very Long Engagement/Taking of Pelham 123/Godfather 2/the Searchers/To Kill a Mockingbird and Blade Runner.

please don't make me decide.

had a good painting weekend, got the first piece in a new gallery series done. The series is one of legendary jazz musicians and vocalists, the painting is of tenor sax genius Lester Young.
Next up is Billie Holiday, of course.
