Interview Of The Week : Gerardo Bruno

Fried eggs and books. It sounds weird but when I think of my cousin (full disclosure), Gerardo Bruno, those two things come to mind. Before Life got too busy, my family was always all together.

De La Vega. If I could write this article in chalk, I would. Chalk is the medium that propelled New York artist De La Vega to fame and helps keep New Yorkers happy. Happy from chalk? De La Vega started in the 90’s drawing quick, but beautiful, images with Continue reading
