Arthur Ashe's Virtual Museum

Arthur Ashe’s widow, Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, has created an interactive web site to commemorate her husband’s spirit and legacy. Arthur Ashe, who died 14 years ago, speaks to us in video interviews about tennis, education, protest, and AIDS.
The web site takes a minute to load, and this time the introduction is worth watching.

Good details and contrast between dark shadows and white areas. You may know the work of the Greek-Italian surrealist artist Giorgio de Chirico, much of whose work you can browse at wahooart.com. This one, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8EWHDW, has the same feel as your drawings.
