Old Notebooks All Smeary and Forgotten

I was looking for some notes I had made on Giant Squid six or seven years ago, so I looked through a bunch of old notebooks and found some smeary, blurred pencil sketches I had mostly forgotten about.

The first was something inspired by Angela Carter's Nights at the Circus (more on that later):

The next was a plague nun - something Lucy Troma related.

And a quick pencil and acrylic sketch of Lucy and Treena:

Wow. You can really see how rusty I was, and hadn't been drawing or making art of any kind (I mean of the picture rather than word variety)in over a decade before I did these. Well, I'm off to draw tonight to continue the process. Anyone want to come?
