Fashion Illustration: A Contemporary Look by Richard Haines

September 6, 2012 - December 1, 2012
Central Library, Grand Lobby

I am influenced by what I see around me, moments captured either on the street or in my studio.  I started my blog as a love letter to the vibrancy, diversity and vitality of New York City.  There is beauty all around us: on the train, the street, a restaurant, a party. My goal is to capture a moment of beauty as it passes by.
