Extrapolating from old illustrations! These are from a once popular magazine called The Idler, full of drama and great Victorian things. I found them on Project Gutenburg, because the internet is a glorious bounty of things past, and we're awfully lucky for it. Please take the time to look at the originals! You can find them in their own context and under their own illustrator's names here and here. And, as Gutenburg themselves state: " This eBook is for the use of anyone anywhere at no cost and with almost no restrictions whatsoever. You may copy it, give it away or re-use it under the terms of the Project Gutenberg License included with this eBook or online at www.gutenberg.net"

I've been sketching out some stories set on themes of rural identity, aging populations and family. I can show you some, I've been posting them on twitter and tumblr. I really like sketching small conversations, little bits of humanity.
one about visitng a new neighbour
and his friend
one from Mother's Day
an untimely death in the community
and one about another neighbour, the cutest and nicest lady.

Just a different tone of comic I am trying to figure out.
