Gangs of New York


I was sketching in a coffee shop and on the shelf next to me was a set of pictoral encyclopedias. A lack of inspiration lead me to pick a few up and flip through. They were from the 50s and had some really cool pictures. One of the pictures was of two kids that looked similar to these guys. I was inspired by the type of clothes they were waring and turned them into a couple of little thugs on the streets of Brooklyn in the 50s. These pictures that I actually take time on actually take more time to complete. Go figure. That's why its taking so long to post new junk. I think I'll try to space them out .
