Meditation Series: (8/8) Billboard and Mural, LA (2021)

I try to abstract the essence of each photograph I sketch in the final edition of my meditations. I tried another experiment here, which didn’t quite work out. I used a white ‘china pencil’ to draw some images and text before I used my watercolors and ink pens. The idea was for these patterns to […]

OtherArtbyJack: Graffitied Door and Arch NYC (1990s)

I was fascinated to find this out-dated, arched structure in 1990s New York City (around 24th Street behind the 23rd Street Post Office).. This building was replaced by a Baruch College campus. This is my rendition of the side arch along with the requisite graffiti (matted print (archival paper and inks) now available on OtherArtbyJack: The […]

OtherArtByJack: Newsstand at 14th Street and 1st Ave, NYC (1990s)

I lived on Avenue C, not too far from where I took the photo that this watercolor is based on. I loved the variety of newsstands in New York City and wandered about looking for interesting ones to capture on film. This watercolor print will soon be available on my OtherArtByJack store on Etsy. My […]

OtherArtByJack: Carriage House Graffiti (1990s)

This carriage house served as a parking garage when I lived down the street from in in NYC. Across the street was the back of the 23rd Street post office. I’m pretty sure it’s gone now, replaced by buildings of Baruch College. It was fun to imagine what it must have been like during the […]

OtherArtByJack: Call Box and Dog Graffiti NYC (1990s)

There used to be fire alarm boxes all over the place in NYC. I saw this one, apparently hit by a car, slightly south of Houston – on Crosby to be exact. I liked the dog graffiti behind it. A print of this 6×4″ watercolor will soon be available on my Etsy shop, OtherArtByJack.

OtherArtByJack: New York Studio School Graffiti (2015)

Pardon the repeat post, but it is raining too hard to go hunt street couches this week. This print is available on my Etsy shop (OtherArtByJack); my autism-inspired art is available at my AutisticInspiredArt Etsy Shop.

OtherArtByJack: New York Studio School Graffiti (2015)

This is a 6×4 fine art print matted to 7×5 of graffiti street art near New York City’s West Village. In fact, the Studio School is on West 8th in New York City. I pen and inked and watercolored this sketch from a 1989 photo I took. My Etsy Shop, OtherArtByJack, will be opening any […]
