Coal Sifting Plant

This is an ink drawing of an abandoned coal sifting plant from a great set of photos I found on Flickr of old machine shops. The original photo is still up at if anyone is interested in doing a comparison and pointing out all of the inaccuracies. I've been doing a lot of figure drawing lately and it was interesting to step away for that and draw something with straight lines.

Me vs. Michelangelo

This is a detail from a panel in the Sistine Chapel called "The Sacrifice of Noah." I did this with charcoal pencil in the trusty oatmeal sketchbook. Yeah, Michelangelo was pretty good.
