A comic inspired my trip to Chicago.
It's part of a project about the sounds we encountered.

This was an attempt to try and capture visually the sound of the street drummers. I used photos I took of water to create the splashes of 'sound' and some of the other ripply textures. The bright colours are meant to feel kind of carnival-like and celebratory with the one contrasting panel showing the reality of them being essentially buskers. The ghost like things are their chanting voices.

I like panel seven. For all their skill the realty is they're playing on the street and so few people give them anything.

Glad you like it!
It's a bit different this one and 'non-drawing' based I guess, but I was really happy with how it turned out.

Thank you!
There's 5 more on the way too. In theory..
