I embarked on Week One of Hypergraphia at the Flatiron on a sun-filled Tuesday morning. The weather is still hot and muggy for September. Coffee cups floated by outside the windows as the foot traffic eddied around the Prow, many people passing from Argo Café just next door.
Cups of the Day #88
Morning at the Flatiron
Scott Kahn, painter, and Dilys Winegrad, curator, both University of Pennsylvania connections, stopped in and lightened my drawing hours.
Faber-Castell. I discovered their Pitt brush pens with their saturated light-fast colored India Ink several years ago and have used them ever since. They give just the right balance of line and brush mark.
Heat built up inside, but we were kept afloat by a vat of iced Hibiscus tea with lemonade courtesy of Argo Tea. Argo Tea has certainly fueled all of Week One. I have thoroughly enjoyed each perfectly brewed cup - no tea bags there.
Week Two is upon me and I am heading out the door for another drawing session in the window studio. You will see me there Tuesdays - Saturdays 11 am - 2 pm, pen in one hand, cup in the other.
I can see your drawings in the first photo and they look gorgeous! Each one is so unique.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful space to exhibit your cups. My favorite so far. I'd come visit but I live in France.
F.C. PITT pens! Ha, I've been using them everyday in my drawings. I bought them in Chelsea during art school and they are still in wonderful shape, unlike my other markers. & they don't bleed! I wonder if I can find them over here.
Congrats to you!
