Recent Drawings

I just scanned through my latest posts and realized that Sunday Signs have become the majority of my blog recently. Signs are great, but here's some ink work that has happened in the last month or so.

This one is a sketch I did during class today, just goofing around with ink and col-erase. 

A sort of quick goofy head done in my sketchbook the other night at one of the ever growing SLC art parties. 

This, like the next two, was done for my senior studio class. The theme was "London Stories"It's an illustration regarding an urban legend in London about a bricked up tunnel around the Whitechapel tube station that once led to the Royal London Hospital. As the story goes, the tunnel allowed hospital workers to load bodies onto a train that would stop at its entrance as there was no room to keep them at the hospital. People have looked around the Whitechapel station for said tunnel, though apparently no one has found it yet. (I think it's behind the skull bricks). Those lines took an awful long time to draw. 

This is the most recent piece for my senior studio class. The theme was simply "Halloween", and after a month of more grisly Halloween drawing for the 31 days series on Facebook, I wanted to do something like this. That little boy is actually myself as a tyke, wearing the very same vampire cape I wore on Halloween (and then for the rest of the year). The colors in the main section were meant to evoke vintage Halloween postcards, with the thought bubble coming more from the Goosebumps books I read as a kid in the 90's.
This is a touched-up version of the spirituality piece I did at the beginning of the semester. I inked these straight lines on vellum, then scanned them in and dropped them into the original drawing in photoshop. I like the straight lines better, but others have said they like the original.
