500 Drawings!

May 15, 2015

  Today, May 15, 2015, marks the 500th consecutive drawing in my drawing-a-day project, “Nick’s Lunchbox Service” — a milestone. I’ve served up one drawing each and every day, wherever I happened to be be, since January 1, 2014, without missing a single one.

I sketch something I pass and then take a photograph of the sketchbook in front of the subject, as if it were a filter in front of the actual object. Check out the archive page on Tumblr to see them all. Most are in NYC, but the settings also include Buffalo, Columbus, Toronto, Turkey and a mountain top or two.

This sketchbook project lives on the Internet but it occurs in real life. It weaves in descriptions of what’s depicted, architectural history, and a diary of my life, which become much more amazing, complex and rewarding with the birth of my daughter in December.

One day I’d love to make a book out of the Lunchbox drawing project. To help make that happen, please amplify the project by sharing on Instagram, Tumblr or Twitter whenever you notice an installment you particularly like. Thanks to all who already do.

Chasing the Light, One Drawing a Day in 2014

January 7, 2015


Did you know that in 2014 I made a drawing each and every day? Check out my Nick’s Lunchbox Service project, and often as it continues into 2015.

The drawings are all made onsite, generally outdoors, photographed on site to blend in with the surroundings, and mostly focused on NYC streets and architecture, but occurred wherever I happened to be–with whatever time frame. Manhattan and Brooklyn are represented most frequently , but the project follows my travels to Buffalo and Columbus, and even to Toronto and to Turkey.

Some days I would have one minute to make a sketch and others more time up to twenty minutes (and good weather, icy weather means a quicker sketch).

In addition to the drawings, text went with it. Sometimes researched, sometimes a momentary impression.

In the feedback I received, there were two main threads of a similar theme. One taking inspiration from the fact that “it doesn’t have to be perfect”. The other appreciating that a drawing is made every day I matter if I’m “too busy”. One post received over 20,000 notes in Tumblr, go figure.

In 2015 I’m moving the “home” of the project from Tumblr to Instagram. I’m announcing you can commission a “lunchbox” drawing and photograph. Also, I’d love to make a book of this project — stay tuned.

And if you were following along all year, thank you!

I got some new postcards in today for the Nick’s Lunchbox Service project today. I then went out and photographed them in the same style as the drawings.
