I am conducting an intensive two-day workshop at Manhattan Graphic Center this weekend. Its a two day monoprint/monotype seminar. I am excited to do this as I usually tremendously enjoy doing these kind of things.


Instructor: Bruce Waldman

This workshop is ideal for artists who love to draw and paint directly
and spontaneously. Monoprints incorporate draftsmanship and direct
painting with printmaking. This workshop approaches monoprinting in a
unique way; draw and paint in color with rollers, brushes, palette
knives and explore how to use found materials creating textures that
enhance the atmosphere and mood of a picture. We will focus on pulling
both light out of a dark background as well as working dark on light.
Students who love to draw find freedom using these techniques, their
color sense is expanded and their drawing abilities can evolve to a
higher level. All levels of experience welcome.

Fee: $260.00
Saturday & Sunday 10:30 – 4:30
March 10 & 11
Limited to 8 students

Museum of American Illustration

This is my boxer piece, up for the next several weeks, at The Museum of American Illustration at the Society of illustrators on East 63rd Street in Manhattan.

The works will be reproduced in the Illustrators Annual #60, next year. The piece is a monotype which is printed in a book, Drawing for Everyone, that I wrote and illustrated and is published by Peter Pauper Press. The boxer piece is in a section on creating sequential images, in a chapter on drawing movement and motion.

It’s an honor for me to be part of this prestigious exhibition and publication.

Editorial Illustration Show at the Pelham Art Center

Currently, I have a number of my large political pieces up in a show at the Pelham Art Center in Pelham, NY. The show will be up until March 25th. The show’s title is OP-ED ART: IMAGE IN THE SERVICE OF IDEAS. It’s a political show trying to capture the mood of the emotional fall-out from the election, and includes works by two of my heroes, Brad Holland and Frances Jetter. Both are famous political illustrators who did tons of political art for the New York Times over the years. It’s really a thrill and an honor for me to have my work up on the walls alongside that of two of my heroes!

The Theme of Ugly Politics

I’ve been in numerous exhibitions in the last two months. A number of them were on the theme of ugly politics, inspired by the election tensions that ran high right up to the election.

The three judgement and courtroom scenes (shown above) were among them.  The first two are recent works, the other was done previously.
