Michael Arthur (Inklines) here with the big wind down to our first search for artists who want to come and draw at Joe’s Pub.

Today’s submission arrives just before the closing bell from Brian Russo, an artist I actually met a while back when we both spent a day drawing portraits for Times Square Art Square, an endeavor to replace billboards in Times Square with actual art. Dreamers, that’s what we are.

Anyway, Brian’s art is whimsical and fun—as is he. He has an almost cartoon style and uses it beautifully in The Perfect Cheese, a book he’s currently working on and sharing via his website. Check out the drawings above and click here for detailed notes about each drawing.
