the hungarian pastry shop

For me drawing from life is a way of saying with no words that I acknowledge you and the uniqueness of your features and the drawing is a collaboration that documents that we both experienced this same moment in time. This drawing made in the Hungarian Pastry Shop in New York City over a decade ago has nearly 160,000 notes on Tumblr and the woman I didn’t know who sat at this table is long gone and yet that moment is still being seen.
