by greg ruth

An early graphite drawing of a ghost character in a new forthcoming graphic novel. I find I come to my characters far more effectively by drawing them over and over again like this. While the story is contemporaneous, the story goes that Flora passed during the Great Spanish Flu Epidemic in Philadelphia, 1912. She was particularly fond of monster stories, and Dracula in particular perhaps due in no small part to her father’s fondness for gothic horrors and penny dreadfuls. Here she poses with a pair of broken toothpicks in her mouth.

The piece measures 8 1/2 x 11″ on Strathmore “Alexis” 400 series drawing paper.
