Sketchbook dump

Hey gang! Here’s a bunch of raw stuff from my trusty sketchbook, they’re basically studies of photos I come across the interwebs while browsing some of my favorite bizarre and vintage-stuff blogs. Last one is an ArtRage study of an N C Wyeth, trying to figure out his badass use of shadow welding. Hope ya dig!
