Tax time is rolling around again, and as a freelancer I need to be on my toes as I gather forms from clients and make sure my numbers tally up to match theirs. My favorite gig for the last few years is not only the one that calls on me regularly, but also allows me the most freedom with an illustration. One would think that a yoga blog as serious as YogaCityNYC would require an equally serious approach to the accompanying art, but luckily for me, usually not! It’s hard not to be whimsical with my illustration, yet my editor/art director Cynthia has been known to push me even further. (We’ve both been doing yoga a while, and often view some of the “scene” that has evolved within this serious discipline through a bit of a jaded eye). But that’s Life, always encouraging me to achieve a balance between work and play, and always with beginner’s mind and an open heart.
Thank you YogaCityNYC!
Guess what--I also write for YogaCityNYC! I get to meet and interview experts in their fields, visit art exhibits, attend workshops, and generally improve my knowledge by being inquisitive and sharing my findings with the reader. So–a double dream gig for this Gemini!
I love this. You are so good at what you do. Love, Mom xoxo
Got it from you, somehow, some way ~ thanks Mom:)
I love this post. It’s so wordlessly Jules Feifferesque.
To be in the same sentence w/Feiffer…blushing here! Thank you Gary.
Talented, AND lucky! You certainly show the fun side of yoga, and its soothing effect too. Good job!
Thank you Diana. Did you know my favorite pose is Dead Bug?
Love the illustrations. Really love them. Such a gift. Smiling still.
Happy to make you smile, Tom! 🙂
Wonderful illustrations! I signed up for my first yoga class ever in January. I’m enjoying it–but it’s hard!
So joyful pictures and the beauty of life in the city!
Thank you! The city always is a fun backdrop, even for yoga! I used to take classes and always: sirens and honking car horns outside the windows 🙂
I LOVE this stuff. It’s you on Joyful Steroids. The most positive and energetic stuff I’ve seen of yours. Just made me smile the whole time so I had to look again and again at your new stuff. My face hurts from smiling.
From warm-hearted whimsy to “Yahoo, Ride ’em Cowgirl!”
Gary! Thank you! Please email or call me and let’s catch up.
