Hungry Ghost Drawings

I recently started to sketch out a figure, that seems to have pushed himself into the border of my consciousness. He’s a masked and cloaked figure and because of the mask his expression is almost impossible to read. He seems playful and slightly sinister all at once. He makes me think of the “hungry ghosts” in Buddhist stories – that wander the realm looking for physical sustenance when what they truly need is spiritual nourishment. I think this character is very reflective of the place I seem to be in at the moment…a bit restless, searching for something, but not quite sure what it is yet – in limbo really. The drawings are done in light gray marker and black pen and so they might be a little hard to see online, but perhaps this is also due to my character’s ephemeral nature…
