Amidst my final thesis work for grad school, I have a painting assignment from our trip to San Francisco. It's actually kind of nice... like a refreshing break from Casey Jones (more info on that later.) Here are my initial sketches for an idea I have. I'm thinking of calling it "Escape from Alcatraz." My research shows that the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Prision, and Al Capone all co-existed in San Francisco between 1937 and 1939... so this is a fun collection of all three. I'm really excited to start working on it as I finish my thesis project.
