Industrial cast iron hooks

Sketch of the in my moleskine art journal are vintage cast iron industrial hooks inspired from my walks around Istanbul, Turkey. I love discovering all the little things around the city. It’s not just about the architecture.  It’s things big and small. The people and the food. The light.  The rain. The smells.
