Last weekend I read, The Sisters Brothers, by Patrick DeWitt, heard Mac Barnett read aloud, The Three Robbers, by Tomi Ungerer, and drew shadows in a class taught by Sophie Blackall.  So the answer to this week's challenge in Illustration Friday for Train is a combination of those influences, and a bit of True Grit too (shadow is of Rooster).
Graphite, ink, and newspaper transfer.

  1. So wild and sinister, I love it! Wonderful composition. And thanks so much for the nice note at my blog!

  2. Thank you, Cindy. Foreshadowing in a drawing?
