This is the last of the sketches from the vampire stripper project. Frank Miller’s Sin City had seen publication a few of years previously and Miller’s high contrast black and white work was very appealing to me. I was (and always am) also looking for ways to draw more quickly. Slow comic book artists don’t produce a lot of work. Usually I do a rough sketch with a light pencil, do a tighter drawing with a darker lead and then ink on top of it. This piece was inked straight from the rough sketch.
