Creative Serenity

Recently, I met my friend, writer-illustrator Leeza Hernandez, for what's come to be our annual creative exchange, where we pick a weekend day to take a bite, stroll, chat, and sketch. After a satisfying meal and cup of coffee or tea (this year it was at the quaint and lovely Bocaditos Bistro), we pick a place conducive to all these things. This year it was at The Cloisters Museum in Manhattan. Here are some photos and drawings from our meeting.
