taking a break from posting comics and posting some background set sketches for the book I’m working on about my first years in San Francisco. These sketches are pretty plain, just straightforward black and white, so they don’t make that compelling stand-alone art (I especially don’t like how Dog Eared looks because in real life it’s the crazy colors that make the aesthetic) but they work great for references for panels.
Small stretch of stores, mostly Polish, along Nassau ave near my apartment. A lot of these stores have pretty cool, old signs that drawing doesn’t do justice to. I tried image searching a photo of Steve’s Meat Market sign but got a picture of a hamburger shoved up someone’s butt so nevermind about that.
