Hand Lettering on the Bowery

This is a hand lettered "A" found on a storefront in the Bowery, Manhattan. I took the photo with my Treo cellphone (which seems to be my current standard camera of choice) converted the photo into black and white and then put the color layer on top, and cut away.

I have to admit that I'm very partial to the look of hand lettering, even though I don't use it that much in my own graphic design work. I guess because I know what looks good I tend to be a harsh critic of my own work. Of course part of the charm of hand lettering is that it is imperfect. This was a lesson that Ellen Shapiro taught me back in the day.

Turn to Clear Vision

The above photo was taken on the observation deck of the Empire State Building, on June 4th, 2006. I tend to avoid the more touristy stuff in NYC, but that day there was a get together of Fall fans in NYC. For those who don't know the Fall, they are a post-punk band from Manchester, England that goes back to the 70s. If everything goes right (and sometimes it doesn't) the band will be returning to New York City this June with a show at the Knitting Factory and at Southpaw in Brooklyn. I had hoped that the Fall would play in Williamsburg, but I'm just happy to have them back in NYC to see them.

Here's another tourist shot of the Empire State Building:

Photo Essay: A Day Without Immigrants

I have a new photo set up on Flickr from the "A Day Without Immigrants" demonstration that was held today:

Photo Essay: A Day Without Immigrants

When I see most photos of a demonstration in the press or on TV they always seem to focus on the fringe element (someone wearing a costume for example). Instead I wanted to capture what people were trying to say.

Tattered Wall in East Village

There's always some wonderful abstract art to be found in urban decay! This was photographed with my Treo cellphone earlier this year.

Bowery Train Station

Bowery Train Station This is a photo I took with my cell phone camera on Sept. 22nd, 2005 at the Bowery subway station. I love the grundge look that my Treo produces when it's running low on energy. Shown in the photo is the escalator that always seems to be out of service. What's also odd about the station is that it has a sealed off exit, and there is also a 2nd set of tracks that the public can't get to (but I will see trains parked there from time to time). Above ground there seems to be a mini-real estate boom going on along Bowery from Delancey to Houston Street.

Uniqlo Store in a Box

Uniqlo is a new fashion store from Tokyo that's just opening up in Soho. As I was was walking to work I spotted this very interesting promotion that they're doing on Houston and Crosby Street, they havea mini-version of the store in an industrial shipping container. It looked very cool and got my attention:

The Cruel Grinder of Life


This was a very utilitarian sign outside a restaurant supply store. I like the rather stark nature of the graphic combined with the power of primary colors.
