Great drawings David. Charcoal is a fun medium to draw in, just wish it wasn't so damn messy! Do you have much luck laying fixative down to keep the charcoal permanently on the paper? I used to use hairspray on charcoal drawings a loong time ago which worked out well enough, and was a lot cheaper than the stuff you get at the art store.

I love the weird non-physical feelings of the drawings, like they're not totally there... like they're phasing in & out of reality.

Thanks guys.
Aeron, well, i don't use charcoal-i think- what you yankees call charcoal, i don't think is the same stuff i use, wich is big bars of soft 9B graphite. The artstore fixer's a scam! hairspray will do as fine,also you can use sheets of cheap photocopy paper to insulate and protect your originals.

Sean, i do think that ghosts are as worthy of portraiting as the people in the street, plus, the people in the street carry the most interesting ghosts

Zeke, i own you a beer!
