Slackwater News

blackwater blues. I made these drawings a long time ago (about a year) for The Slackwater News. I though I'd post something since it has been a while since the last one.

Their newest album- Graveyard Mates - which I also illustrated is now available for purchase on itunes or as a hard copy (so that you can see how incredible it looks in print)
The guys did an amazing job with the tracks. I'll update sooner or later with more news on where you can find the music.

Ladies with Hats

Back when I used to be a more active alley forager I would find some real treasures, especially in the old brownstone Baltimore city neighborhood I once called home. With a little patience and some ignorant bravery, one could scavenge some really glorious garbage among the broken glass and discarded syringes. One such object I discovered was a Victorian photo album full of miniature portrait photographs. I have created these drawings in an attempt to bring these faces back into the world after a century of hiding away.

I don't have much experience with portraits but I thought these would make interesting studies. Plenty of imperfections in the proportions of the face, etc. but I like the mood and the look of them. Hopefully I'll have more to show soon~
