The Angel of Death asks Sister Jude, “Are you ready?” Her answer: “Kiss me.”

I sketched during the final episode of American Horror Story Asylum, but only just enough to get the images I wanted down on paper. What a satisfying wrap up to the season. Really not any dangling story threads to wonder about. This morning I splashed some watercolors onto my drawings, although this Strathmore hardbound sketchbook isn’t really made for it. I stubbornly use this book for my tv character sketching, washing it on anyway because I like the way the pages crinkle when I leaf through to look at what I’ve done.

As attracted as I am to dark and scary TV shows, I am absolutely obsessed with this season’s American Horror Story. I’m especially drawn and repelled by the Day Room scenes where Sister Jude has ordered that the record player be in constant use, playing an annoying nonsensical song. When I was a kid, I used to play that song on my record player incessantly: the French Singing Nun’s “Dominique”. One side of the 45 rpm record had the French version and the other had the English. Hooked on this show, my need to know the answers will grow until it airs the next episode on January 2, 2013. I wait…

Guiltily, I took an hour to catch up on last night’s American Horror Story — Asylum, one of my many guilty pleasures.

There is another sketch worthy character from this finale episode: the Angel of Death. I’d better sketch that one soon or I’ll always be looking over my shoulder…
