  A gray day to die; also, Sterrett & BeardsleyMar 09, 2012 5:41 AM PST | url
 
Added 1 new A* page:You know, I've been getting myself into lighting situations lately where it's seemed like a good idea to use a lot of gray rather than black or white. ... I don't think that's a good idea. :P But I keep doing it! Hum. Well I went with three coats of black ink on this one; kind of overkill (and it came out oddly glossy in real life :o) but it sure as heck won't be mistaken for gray!

Well I went to an art gallery and a university book store all in the name of webcomic exploration today, and now...I don't have time to tell you about it. :P
 
Maybe tomorrow? I dunno, Fridays are always kind of rough, time-wise. Hm well anyway for now you can go check out this Virginia Frances Sterrett gallery that I was shown recently; the unearthly grace and long linework of her figures, and the overall two-dimensionality, reminds me a lot of the work of Aubrey Beardsley--and they both died young of tuberculosis! :/--only more colorful and not so R-rated; and Virginia, born in 1900, was a generation after Beardsley.
 
But Beardsley was an interesting looking fellow--seen here about 1895, when he would have been 23:
