That's a very tired and frustrated Sleeping Beauty and Dracula. I did these for the very cool advertising agency that is Medina Turgul DDB. When the ads are finished, I'll post them along with the third illustration so you can see how they were used.

Tonight I am taking off for a few days to Kapadokya, also known unphonetically in the West as Cappadocia, which is in central Anatolia. I haven't been since I was eight or so, and I'm terribly excited. I'm not sure what to pack, as I'll be doing a lot of walking and I don't know what the weather will be like.

Kapadokya is a land unlike any I have seen, I remember it feeling like I was on another planet with all its caves and bizarre rock formations. Of course, this was over 20 years ago, and it has become a major tourist attraction, so I doubt it feels as desolate as I remember it. I'm taking three sketchbooks, my camera and loads of pens. I doubt the little bed and breakfast I'll be staying in has internet accesibility, so I'll be posting all the sketches and pictures when I come back later next week. In the meantime, if you are curious, you can read about Kapadokya on Wiki.
