NEW YORK CARDSFor twenty years, between 1997 and 2017 I obsessively drew thousands of "Hughcards" [cartoons drawn on the backs of business cards], just to give me something to do while sitting at the bar.
The project got its start while I was living in late-nineties New York, hence the name.
This entire collection makes up a larger single piece, entitled "New York Cards 1998-2017". It is my hope to one day have the entire piece displayed permanently in a museum.
Individual cards from The New York Cards are never for sale, or allowed to be removed from the piece. Only cards drawn 2018 and after are ever for sale, and can be regarded as individual pieces.
New York Cards is my magnum opus, and this website serves as the main record of the work.
