Joan of Arc Spot
I'm pretty sure this was my first ever published illustration. It was drawn for The Zinester's Guide to Portland. I was living in Portland at the time, and I remember I biked down to draw this sculpture in person. I had a horrible bike wreck on my way there - flipped over my handlebars, bent my front wheel in half - so this was drawn while I was bloody and bruised. That might be why it never occurred to me that Joan of Arc is supposed to be carrying a flag in this sculpture. I guess it was being repaired or something on the day that I drew it. Oh well, what you see here is what made it into the book!
I am posting this old work to get it back online after I stopped using Flickr to display my illustration work.
