Eastern State Penitentiary.
This past weekend, I joined a group of painter friends to draw outside around Philly. We met up in Fairmount and chose our locations around the neighborhood.
Today, I’m sharing a couple ink drawings from the Eastern State Penitentiary. This austere prison rises forebodingly above the row homes surrounding it. Functioning as a prison from 1829 until 1971, it was designed for inspiring reform and penance. Interesting fact, each cell had running water, before the White House even did.
And for those who can handle it, every year it hosts “Terror Behind the Walls” a haunted prison experience for Halloween.

Pieces and parts for a new project. Liked this little grand piano on its own.
So much stuff in the works that I can’t share yet! Stay tuned this month!

I had the fortune to get the assignment to draw more mushrooms! This set is for Chickpea Magazine, a beautiful quarterly magazine with a focus on whole vegan food. So honored to be a part of the Fall Issue.
