Things Fall Apart

Chinua Achebe's "Things Fall Apart."

I finished reading this book last night, and I really loved it. It was very well written, and also incredibly depressing.

I started the sketch of Okonkwo earlier today and just kept going until I had this, it's very different for me, seeing as it's finished digitally. It was fun to step outside my element, the whole piece was done in 2 hours. It's nowhere near as cool as Edel Rodriguez's version, but it was worth spending my afternoon on. It will be a worthy addition to the "Sketchbook/Experiment" section in my website.

Mutter Museum + Extras.

I spent the last week at my mothers house. It was nice to visit my old room, pet the dogs and watch HBO on demand. But I am glad to be back in philly, back to posting work. The first sketch is for a new piece I am working on, it's a study of one of the figures. The second sketch is a collection of drawings that I did at the Mutter Museum (it's such a cool place). If you like malformed fetuses, Victorian medical tools, or horribly diseased skeletal remains, then the Mutter Museum is the place for you. The last sketch was done on a napkin, probably inspired by my Mutter trip. I used a brush pen and I thought that the holes created a unique texture for the drawing.
