Underbelly of Birmingham; sketches.

I wanted to draw something which i have never done so before and therefore decided on the idea of myths and legends which are associated with birmingham. I found a site which showed paranormal activity and legends seen on certain streets of birmingham.
Above are some really quick gnarly sketches of what came to mind when i read the different stories. I am undecided whether to pick one character and make that into a set of images, or have a zine showing all the characters, such as the work of Brinkman and his 'monsters' zine.
Withing each composition i may include a road sign with the location of where these legends reside, and perhaps the name of each character, for example 'coxwell road, the baby butcher'.

why not go and draw the places on location to get a feel for the place?
