John Brown - Preview

I've been hard at work this summer completing final art for my children's book about John Brown. I wanted to post a recent image I enjoyed. This depicting John's relationship with Harriet Tubman, one of his greatest friends and allies. Due to her bravery and leadership, he called her "The General."

That silhouette looks familiar.

Yes, the photo reference for that JB silhouette is Mike Costelloe. He will be getting a full page bio in the book as well as 90% royalties.

CW- thanks, yeah, everything is deadline. Enjoying process is tough for me. Trying to take a deep breath.

John, nicely done. As usual, I love those small passages in the background (cabin, trees) that get just enough attention to add a lot, yet aren't fixatedly overworked. Whatta touch, whatta touch...
