Death and the Maiden drawing by David Van Gough

Death and the Maiden
9″ x 9″
Felt tip pen on paper

The Death and the maiden motif has been one which has always fascinated me, so using Sharon Tate’s likeness was going to be an obvious progression. Little did I know that Polanski titled one of his films in the same vein. Anyway, I produced this sketch using felt tip pens-something I used consistently when I was a child-so it gives the impression of observing the murders from quite a naive point of view.

I think it worked out quite well for a sketch.
