Midwife Sketchbook 1

A late night sketch for some Piranesi inspired architecture from the upcoming Marquis and the Midwife graphic novel. Reference done for the back cover to the book and chapter 3, where Vol de Galle searches deeper for the Midwife and her children.

With all the design sketches on the book, I draw it out first straight with pen (no pencilling since it usually slows me down and I'll start rethinking any train of thought) and then work it up with digital greys to bring out some details and mood.


  1. all inks, no pencils? just slayin it, no mercy. that's rad

  2. You are great. i love your architectural dedication. It brings so much power to the story.
    I hope you´ll be Ok.

    Best wishes,


  3. Yeah, drawing straight with ink and no pencils is very liberating. Great stuff, Guy!
