Stay Home Clappers

It’s been a year. I very loosely sketched this idea last year when we were clapping every evening for essential workers. It was a very rough sketch, just a smidge of an idea trying to capture some of the neighbors and strangers we saw and clapped alongside. I found the sketch a few weeks ago as I started working again more consistently. As we just passed the year mark of this pandemic, it felt appropriate to try to create it. It was comforting in a way, sketching things I remember, and processing as I worked. I’m glad I finished it.

Also, note the family cameo.

Inktober: friends?

October 16, 2015
Completely forgot to post this. (And yes, totally slacking off on the Inktober stuff. Sleep. It always comes first and is so elusive with little ones.

Also, that one on the left is a total, inadvertent self-portrait. And the other one is based on a lady I passed on the streets who was so sleek-looking in her fitted, all black ensemble, except for her bright yellow tights and sunglasses. I wished we could chat. We might be friends.
