Meet the correspondents: NEW YORK > Stephen Gardner
"I rediscovered my love of drawing during an MA course in illustration. I have been a professional illustrator for more than twenty years and prior to taking the course had gotten a little stale. Now I draw everyday as a way to keep my work fresh and honest.
Living in New York City, as I have done for the last twenty years, I’m amazed by just how much can pass you by if you fail to stop and look. Carrying a sketchbook with me has given me a reason to seek out new places and experiences that I would otherwise have missed.
I live in Brooklyn so I hope to show you just what makes this place so special."
