I'm half Japanese, so I come from a culture that believes in ghosts and spirits. They are all around you, restless and haunting the woods, old buildings and houses. People who die are still with us in all the things that surround us. I can't say that I've ever saw a ghost, but there are times when a place just doesn't feel right. You can't say what it is. There's just something creepy. Who else believes in ghosts? Who else knows what I mean?
That was the inspiration for this drawing in my sketchbook. But it's more than ghosts around you. I think there are ghosts living within each person. They are filled with hungry ghosts from the past that still have unfinished business. It's like living in a haunted house. I know that I have those kinds of ghosts. Who else feels haunted?
I got the light, sketchy, under drawing done and I'm starting to fill in the details of the drawing (as you can see in the photos above). Next week, I'll post more of my work in progress on this Haunted House Girl drawing.
