March 2014. I chance upon an opportunity to attend a free Master Class at The New York Academy of the Arts. My buddy Curt Everitt put me up in his creative space and I experienced the real living in Brooklyn. It was gnarlly. Selected Sketch here. More can be view on my website ( www.cherngzhi.com) Currently looking for a pub lisher to publish all my travel sketches.

Great sketches of NYC!!! I love the detail to the indoor ones of the apartment. I will have to go to your website and see more.

Nice sketches.

Try self-publishing with Amazon.com. I know two people who have done so. One- a golfer - travels, plays golf, and then writes books about his experience. He has a website and it works very well for him to get his B&B and golf fees comped! His look very nice. Another is an artist who illustrated some books her father wrote and then put them on Amazon. You can put them there for sale or buy a few and sell them yourself. It is a print on demand model so I'm not sure of all the costs, but I'm doing a family cookbook for my kids and plan only to buy what I want to give to my family and friends, and perhaps some clients.

When I have a little more time, I'll p.m. you with links to these two writers. Another writer I know was unhappy to learn that there's no upfront fee with Amazon after she'd paid a few hundred $$$ upfront for her publishing fees, and to a company that prints on demand.

Are you using the Moleskine sketchbook? I like the 2 page spread.

Carole thanks. I am just not too sure about the work involved with publishing and a publisher on board could really help. Thanks for information. I will look into it. Thank you everyone else for their props. :) I wasn't using a moleskine. Rather I was using some sketchbooks by Globalarts

Great work, especially like your crowd sketches, always nice to see how other artists deal with that.
