Januar im F-Zug in Brooklyn.

[Subway drawings by Sharon Frost]  Two books on the F train. On the way to Spanish class. The subway has become a home to me, in a way. It lets me live without owning a car. That’s pretty great!

In Bewegung und in Wartestellung in Brooklyn und Manhattan.

[Drawings by Sharon Frost] It’s true I do a lot of drawing on the subway. Somehow public transportation invites depiction. It must be the combination of motion and the invitation to introspection: everyone is in their respective private spaces. The shared public-space-in-motion has fascinated me since I arrived in New York City in 1968. Drawing […]

Leben aus nächster Nähe in Brooklyn, der Stadt in der Stadt.

[Drawings by Sharon Frost] Above ground and underground. F train : Eye to Eye. F train. On the way to our last Spanish class of the term. We have an exchange in our building’s laundry room. I’d never seen handcuffs there before.Add caption It’s been a winter of extremes: cold, sometimes snow, sometimes rain. It’s […]

In der U-Bahn und beim Rumhängen in Brooklyn.

[Drawings by Sharon Frost]  A cold winter means lots of huddling indoors, even if it’s on the subway. Cozy local bars are also welcome sanctuaries. When we first moved to our neighborhood, Kensington/Windsor Terrace, just over 20 years ago, bars and restaurants were relatively rare. Now we see places springing up all over the place, […]


I spent some time sketching in UrbanGlass. A beautiful glass working school, in Brooklyn. It is a fantastic place. Different workshops for each step of the glass works: hotshop, coldshop, mould shop… Lots of people working at any time and doing beautiful pieces. Everything quite sketchable.

[Von Pedro Cabral] Brooklyn ist vielleicht nicht der beste Ort, um orientalische Tempel zu skizzieren, aber es regnete in Strömen und es gab ein Dach direkt vor dem japanischen Teich und Garten...

Interaktionen in Brooklyn: durch das Fenster und im F-Zug.

[Drawings by Sharon Frost] We spend most of June preparing for our 2 month trip to Spain, while summer emerges slowly, the world seems crazy. We have new windows, but don’t always like what we see. On the way to dinner with Art, after over 2 hours on the phone with Iberia Airlines.. The subway […]

Enclosed spaces in Brooklyn and Manhattan: subway cars, the waiting room, the classroom, and the living room. We’ve (almost) all been there.

[Drawings by Sharon Frost.] Waiting room at Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, Cardiology. Time slows. F train in Brooklyn: the illusion of being connected. F train in Brooklyn: passengers with skateboard. At home in Brooklyn. Watching Jeff Sessions obfuscating and avoiding questions before the Senate. In Spanish class in Brooklyn, trying to hold onto sanity in the […]

Das Leben geht weiter in Brooklyn.

[Drawings by Sharon Frost.] As spring is evident everywhere. Idlewild Books in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Spanish class.  Our building’s spring tag sale, in Brooklyn. Coffee in the Brooklyn Commune on Prospect Avenue. Reflecting over coffee in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn, with lamp and fire escape. Idlewild Books, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Presentation about Cuba with Havana Club. […]
