Janet Hamlin, Illustrator

Hamdam Guantanamo Tribunal

My good friend Janet Hamlin used to work for AP and has made many trips to Guantanamo as a courtroom artist. She has been going back recently as a freelancer and posts some of her drawings and stories on her blog. Her work ranges from tribunals, to famous people who have contributed much to our society, to worldwide events, to the figure drawing classes she leads at the Hopper House in Nyack.

I love seeing her wonderful illustrations and always learn something about current events as well! Check out her stories! Janet Hamlin Illustration.

Transit Museum, Brooklyn

I love going on class/camp trips. The YMCA goes to the best places, and Transit Museum is always one of our favorites. It is in an old subway station. Every time we go back there is more to see...

Trader Joe's - Queens

Back to Trader Joes, yippee!
This one has amazing murals created by the local in house artist, Trader Joe's meets Queens.

Cafe Grumpy

This reminds me of the one of the first things I look at in the
morning. Finally decided to try stepping out to cafe grumpy which I
watched being built but never made it back to try. Its been getting
best coffee in the city reviews, and now I can say its well worth it!

Cappucino Circuit, Oak Bluffs, MV

Back when I graduated high school, I worked in Martha's Vineyard for the summer at the Black Dog Bakery. Then I got a night job scooping ice cream at the far end of Circuit Ave in Oak Bluffs. Years later, a good friend of mine and renowned chef, Donna Hall, opened up a coffee place at the same spot my ice cream place used to be.
Jump to present: I'm testing my new scanner. These slides I always loved...
