This is my first piece of original art (if you can call it that).
Sculptor Keith Jennings carves sage and serene faces into the trunks of trees for a project entitled Tree Spirits. For him the pieces reveal each tree’s unique inner spirit. The project began in 1982 with a tree in Keith’s own backyard. Later Jennings was commissioned to uncover the faces on tress across St. Simons, an island right off the coast of the state of Georgia.
Jennings took two to four days to sculpt each serene face throughout the forest, allowing them to intriguingly blend into their surroundings. (Of course, once they’re spotted, it’s hard not to notice their faces.) Each sculptural portrait emerges from its wooden post like a haunting sage, ready to impart some knowledge. The artist says that each face he carves into the wood is created entirely according to the tree. He insists, “I don’t have that much to do with it. The wood speaks to you, ya know?”

What began as a blog, All The Buildings In New York, to keep track of his many sketches of New York’s architecture (particularly the brownstones), is now a book (All The Buildings in New York: That I’ve Drawn So Far - which includes about 500 drawings). Organized by neighborhoods, it features New York architectural icons from the past and present, including the Chrysler Building, the Flatiron, Apple’s 5th Avenue store, as well as the everyday buildings that make up New York’s unique cityscape.

I tried to draw this…
But I think it was an unintentional homage to Jerry Robinson (Rest in Peace).
