1920s Lower East Side

10 Jan

I’ve been slowly sketching for a future graphic novel project with favorite collaborator and best playwright probably ever, MJ Kaufman. It’s about a bunch of Jewish queers and a dybbuk in the 1920s Lower East Side, and it’s based on a play MJ wrote a while back called “A Live Dress.” This is just a sketch from the set that I feel kind of good about, mostly because I used watercolor graphite for the first time, which I am now obsessed with. It’s basically just a soft block of graphite that you use with water and a brush, and then can erase when it dries. I never draw with pencil but now I am in love.
