sketchbook, New York City

 

I was 27 years old and had just finished my 3rd formal education. With a loan from my father I headed to the center of the universe and took a full-time job as an intern in one of the big design companies.

A squatted building on 7th street in alphabet city, an area of manhattan where back in the days the homeless and drug addicts roamed around, became my home. I lived there with my partner in crime, a graphic designer and gifted artist from Switzerland.

Museums, street-scenes, work, movies, different ethnic groups, smells, sounds, the vibration of that diverse and pulsating city which I love and hate until this day - inspiration was everywhere. Thousands of ideas, pictures and projects popped up in my mind, later on photography paper, scraps of paper or directly in my sketchbook of that period in my life during which everything was possible.
