These peices are from my sketchbook for a narrative project set by my University. We had to create panels which were monocrome, American in tone and perhaps envolve detectives and dangerous sadistic women.

I wanted to get across a film nior feel in my work so I watched old black and white films such as 'Money Madness' (1948) and 'The Big Sleep' (1946) for inspiration and these peices are my interpretation of almost 'movie stills'.

I created this work by using black ink in a loose technique.
