sketch for ESP transom

this is a thumbnail cartoon--not even a sketch really. Although it looks teensy here it is 57" wide and about that tall at the peak of the arch. I used tons of doodles from umpteen trillion meetings, lectures and phone calls. So much I previously thought useless has found new life here. Mostly in clown suits....... The theme is "The Battle of Carnival and Lent". I thought it fitting for a prison--the kind of battle inside everyone with impulse control issues. Let's think binary for sec, shall we? Apollo vs. Dionysus, angel vs. devil, chaos vs. control, Lennon vs. McCartney, vanilla vs. chocolate, night vs, day etc etc the yin yang of it all!!! The humanity!

God help you if don't click to enlarge it....

Here's Breughel's orig.

Nah--I'm not psychic! That's stands for Eastern State Penitentiary!
Here's some teaser photos--but some of you may not know that I am posting very, very little of my progress here or on FB.
For info on how to follow the project at USArtists please follow this link to a post I did a little while back which has all the info.

Here's the layering for you techies. That's R/cl lamberts with 1059 reusche and silverstain. The blue is who-knows-what...lambert's probably....and the pink is aurora on clear Saint Just...I had a huge SNIT when the layer for the body fell out of my hand (apparently the brain function which governs gripping is defective in me) and smashed to bits.... Here is an excellent resource for those trying times, so you aren't left speechless, gawd forbid.
