Why I do this thing with the NYTimes?

I love to make interferences on various newspapers mainly from New York…

Also, I lived in New York for many years. I remember when I was looking for a job in the heavy Sunday paper.

Years ago I made some video drawings with a sharpie on the New York Times paper while in the Starbucks taking my coffee morning with a bagel and cream cheese. Most of my videos I made in Manhattan, New York, and in Montclair, New Jersey.

I had a great time drawing while in the middle of a crowd. I like to see people coming and going, pay attention to them… and their talks in many different languages. A coffee shop environment fuel my emotions and creativity.

This is one of them.

Instead of thinking of each piece of content separately, I use one piece of art to produce different things.

Once upon a time

One drawing…

It becomes an NFTart >> becomes an article >> becomes an ebook.

Same drawing >>for sale as a file for instant download.

The same drawing >> use on different products…T-shirts, dress, prints, notebook and more.

Henri Matisse quote about art.

I do not literally paint…
