I didn’t get to shoot a lot of the show, but here are a handful of performance shots from last weeks Nerdlesque Festival at Webster Hall.
I think this was my favorite illustration out of them all. Ages ago, I had to illustrate a train station scene, and looking back I was mortified by the result. This was a way to try it again and redeem myself a bit. Also, getting to draw a hat box and a dolman in the same illustration was a highlight.
Illustration is for the second volume of the Ouroboros Cycle.
"The last rites of many a Victorian gentleman involved a discreet fire at the bottom of the garden." - The Sexual History of London, C. Arnold.
