Larry Sultan at SFMOMA

I was invited for a preview at SFMOMA for Larry Sultan, a highly influential California photographer I knew little about. I ended up walking the galleries four times - this is opening April 15. I made a little preview movie about this. (sorry about the sound quality, no external microphone attached at that time...)

Featured on Dezeen, article by Dan Howarth. A few quotes: "Dan Hogman's architectural sketches "capture the essence" of their subjects" and "San Francisco-based Hogman's drawings give Architectural Graphics author Francis Ching a run for his money." Frankly, this might be a little overstated, so it's a sign that I need to get a little more disciplined with my work...

The Sakura Micron Packages Are Here!

I was a commissioned to do a fee cover sketches for Sakura and Micron fineliners, featuring all the different pens and line weights that come with this set. They are here!vShould be available in art stores worldwide shortly. This goes to Europe, so we picked a relevant theme/subject.

Cover Sketches for Sakura Europe

The Pigma Micron fineliner from Sakura are some of my favorites. I’ve always liked the accuracy in line weights. Slightly too dry for my type of works, but steady line quality.

It was pleasant surprise to be called by Sakura Erope and commissioned two sketches for their 6 fineliner pack and 6+1 pack. These are covers (graphic design for Sakura). The products were released at Paperworld trade show this past weekend, late January 2017, in Frankfurt. —

A Few Recent Live Sketches

Some recent live sketches from San Francisco. Freehand, sketch time 10-25 minutes. I go directly in black ink in most cases, no pencil, hence the innacuracies.

Thanks Dianne de Guzman with the San Francisco Chronicle / SFGate "Dan Hogman's drawings of San Francisco architecture can bring out details in buildings that even longtime residents may not have noticed." See full article here

Second article just appeared on SFist. "It may not be Follow Friday just yet, but Dan Hogman's Instagram account and Facebook page are worth a Like any day of the week for lovers of Bay Area architecture, cool drawings, and generally hip aesthetics." says Caleb Pershan.


A day at the museum - New Museum, SANAA, NYC

A day at the museum – a must do, both for the exhibit and for the building itself – SANAA did great again. A deceivingly simple interiors. Some great moments inside, the narrow stair in particular. It's an exit stair, really, so purely utilitarian, and the space constraints created a narrow, elongated, expressive volume. I am no covering the exterior, which has been photographed over and over again by many...
