I’ve been saving this one for Halloween.
Last month, I visited the Bob’s Burgers exhibit at Spoke Art NYC. It was too cool.
My favorite character from the show is Tina Belcher, so of course all of the art featuring her caught my eye.
I especially loved this one called “Erotic Zombie Friend Fiction” by Stephen Andrade. She looks like such a teenager with that mini skirt! And check out that pose!
White Zom-Brie Burger, anyone? Check out more of Andrade’s work at www.sandradeillustration.com/home.html.
Have a happy and safe Halloween!
I was riding the Q53 bus a few days ago when I saw illustrator Marcos Chin’s Fulton Street, Beneath the Beautiful Blue above the seats in front of the bus.
If you ride the NYC MTA subway, you’ve probably seen some of his other art, filled with interesting people and vibrant colors.
What I love the most about this one is the girl walking with a flower pot in hand. The way one of the flowers is sticking out of the pot makes it look like the gorgeous pink flower is actually a hair accessory. That had to be intentional, right?

Mid-winter break is over, kiddos.
Last week I found myself wandering into The POWERHOUSE Arena, a bookstore/exhibition space in Brooklyn, where I came across several prints by cartoonist Adrian Tomine.
Tomine’s “Winter Break” stood out to me the most for two reasons. The first was the fact that it was actually mid-winter break for NYC public school students, which I was constantly reminded of when I didn’t see the school crossing guard on the way to the train station during my morning commute. The second was the fact the cartoon depicts a juxtaposed snowy city scene with an ice cream truck waiting on the block for God knows who to buy ice cream from it in the freezing cold. “Winter Break” was originally published in the February 2, 2009 issue of The New Yorker.
What I love most about this print is the silhouette of the city in the background. The light green filter over the buildings give the print a serene touch.
This print is available for purchase on Adrian Tomine’s website, and of course, at The POWERHOUSE Arena.
