Love this post about Monaco's, a Geneva coffee spot with a long history in the community. Brings me back to days of nickel candy and icee pops in the summer! What is your favorite coffee spot in the area? And thank you for sharing! #Repost@artfulfoxlettering

This is the first location of my new series: #flxfaves
Monaco’s is one of our favorite places to go in Geneva! It’s a true neighborhood third place, a hangout for people to visit regularly away from home and work. The design is eclectic and beautiful, and the atmosphere is so inviting! I love this space so much and you can definitely tell that @monacoscoffee celebrates and values the history of their location, as it was a neighborhood grocer of the same name in 1917. It’s always great to stop and get one of their specialty lattes, some avocado toast, @redjacketny juice, and to play some board games or listen to the open mic artists on Wednesday evenings. We missed the Rochester coffee scene when we moved away three years ago, but the Finger Lakes has some amazing cafes like Monaco’s which made us feel at home!
(Partial) Sketchbook timelapse #7
100 + 20 people, my entry for #oneweek100people2019 . This is my third year of #oneweek100people and this year I tried my best to do live drawing or draw people I actually encountered in real life whose photos I (secretly) took.
People are always my enemy when it comes to drawing. Adding people to our sketches sure produces lively drawings, gives sense of proportion and scale, gives meaning to scenes we draw rather than just drawing beautiful (architecture) objects. This exercise helps me build my confidence in quickly drawing human figuers and gestures.
I used a handy A6 notebook that I could easily hide when my drawing objects got suspicious 🤣 also I could easily pull my notebook out on sudden interesting situations. #sketch#drawing#urbansketch#urbansketching#usk#sketchbook#flipthrough
When I say that I have met some of the best people through art this is what I mean. I knew @madhurphadnis only through Instagram. .
She won the giveaway contest and since she lived in HK we decided to use this reason to meet up as well. And boy am I glad that we decided to meet! .
She is an amazing company, super chatty, hilarious( swipe to see the video🤣🤣🤣), multifaceted person. I am always glad to meet talkative people, because then I don’t have to strive endlessly to keep the conversation going. And apart her full time marketing profession, she is a talented and passionate baker! Oh the cherry on the top is she loves cooking and feeding people! I have mad respect for such people. I feel it’s a dying exotic breed of people🥰.
This has to be the best unboxing reaction video😂, super candid and unapologetically hilarious. I loved every minute of it!!
I make art for such priceless reactions🤗🤗
