Sketches from Old Sturbridge Village

Here are some pencil sketches that I did in 1987 at Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts, where they recreate the life of an American small town in the early 19th century.

Damon Cook is my father. He passed away in 2007. These are great sketches. Glad I found this.
