Eugene Salandra

A New Jersey native, I studied film and television at New York University, and drawing at the Art Students' League of New York. Excepting a brief Benedictine monastic sojourn, my life has been occupied with practicing the art of animation. Mentors John Canemaker and the late Tissa David were among my influences. Favorite things include drawing, watercolor, tea and herbalism, yoga, meditation, music, theatre, puppetry, crochet, nature strolls, and vegetarian cooking.

These ink and watercolor spot illustrations were created for the First Annual Stuart Timmons LGBTQ West Hollywood History Mobile Tour, in June of 2015.  They were reproduced on signs held by tour guides stationed along the tour route in the city.
