Greetings from Coney Island! [May. 16th, 2007|10:12 pm]
Ellen Lindner - Comics and Illustration
Finally back from my travels abroad....here are some sketches from a solo trip I made to Coney Island!








One day during my month-long wedding stay in NYC I took the train to BAM to see 'The Lives of Others', not knowing that I was looking at the wrong schedule - d'oh!
I was left with an afternoon to kill. What else to do when near the Q train in Brooklyn with a few hours spare? Go to Coney Island!





I got lots of sketches done on the train and on the boardwalk....more New York sketches to come in the next few days as I sort through my sketchbook.








Thanks for looking!

Pathetically, I've still never been to Coney Island. I have big plans to get out there at least once in the next few months, as I've heard they're going to be changing it a lot in the next year.

Go! Go! Go!
The cool thing about Coney Island is that if you live anywhere near the F, N, Q, or a bazillion other trains there's no excuse whatsoever for not going every day! :) And the redevelopment rumors are 100% legit, so hurry!

Hooray! It's great to have you back! And I love the sketches, particularly the first and third, really nice. Did you get to go to MoCCA?

I'll have to pop round sometime with the bulky handmade wedding gift I threatened you with... ;-P

Tee hee, MoCCA's not for another month, silly! :)
Thanks for the greetings - it's nice to be back! We'll have to have lunch sometime...I've been thinking about doing a C'well art supply run. Talk to you soon!
PS Any chance I could lure you, Stuart and maybe some Camberwell folks to the Surrealist ball davelasky did the comic for? Let me know! I'm keen to go!

Oh yeah, I always get these comics fair dates mixed up... :-P
I can't wait to hear about the wedding and all that! I would totally go to the Surrealist ball (sounds fabulous), but I'm going to be in Prague for Stuart's best friend's anniversary party. We're also going to Berlin, which is cool because I've never been there! Yes, let's get together for lunch when you're free, maybe that noodle place between you and the Oval, yum yum.

Thanks Jenny! You know, the moment I heard about the big changes on the way, I hightailed it down. I actually went twice in a month - the second time with a boatload of British people who'd never been there before. The beach was lovely, we did bumper cars twice and I got something that resembled food poisoning at either the cheap daiquiri place or Nathan's. Good trip! :)

Are you married now? If so, congratulations! And thanks for the sketches! I like the last one. It looks as if the tired woman is half-dreaming of a field of flowers on her way home from a long day of work.

Hi David,
Yep, I'm married! Thanks for your congratulations! It was fun, but now I'm a bit stressed - I took about a month off except for sketching and my MoCCA plans have gone a bit awry!
Glad you liked the flowery lady...that is indeed exactly the effect I was going for!
best,
ellen L.

Hope all is well in NYC...

Thanks N!
No news so far on Lincoln...it's been pushed back a bit. Which is good, because I am super-busy with other stuff. :) I was a trifle naive, shall we say, about how much my month-long break for my wedding would affect my work schedule!
Any knitting news? I went to WEBS while back in Massachusetts - it is all the hyperventilation-hallucination-inducing yarn madness you can imagine, and then some.
