Hot August Smoke

I often find myself looking at google street view for something interesting to draw. But then I just end up wandering around Malta or whatever. Here was a nice highway work scene from California. Probably I just wanted to draw all those pylons.

Listening to an Ultraculture podcast about Jack Parsons, so I decided to draw him and some of the other characters around him. I’m curious how that Strange Angel show is, haven’t seen it yet.
