A pencil, pen, chalk and oil pastel sketch. It’s a bit Blade Runner inspired. I believe all but one sign is from a street in Kowloon – which I visited long ago… It’s taken me two weeks to finish this and manage to get it scanned and posted. I can’t wait until my kids are back in school!
Expect to see more of me in September. I have several paintings to share! In the meantime, look for me, HeatherUnderground on Instagram.

In high school and college I studied Russian, and lived in Russia as an exchange student multiple times. Those experiences have stayed with me and influenced me in many ways. I even sign my paintings with my name in Russian: XE3EP, pronounced “heh – zher” as there is no “th” sound in Russian. I love communist propaganda posters. After I finished this pencil sketch, I attempted to color it using my rudimentary digital art skills…. I’m pretty happy with the results. Instead of “Workers of the World, Unite!” it’s “Artists of the World, Unite” which we all should, I think!
