Soooo I don’t think I’ve mentioned yet on tumblr that I just left HBO to go be the new Art Director at @camposantoblog! More on that later (it goes without saying that I am very excited about it), but in the interim between the two gigs I’ve been off on a spontaneous road trip exploring/sketching a bunch of ghost towns and other cool stuff in California/Nevada.
I ended up hitting a total of nine ghost town/mine/ranch sites, and so this is Part 1 of my sketch drop – Bodie and Chemung Mine.
The Kennicott Homestead at The Grove, Cook County, Illinois by Bob Callebert Via Flickr: The late summer prairie at The Grove is truly a sight to behold. It’s worth making a special trip. The Kennicott home is back there hiding in the mist, which was really heavy this morning.
