Mr. Singer


I started "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" this week because, despite a solidly Northern upbringing, I have a soft spot for all things Southern Gothic. As I read, I find I'm mentally illustrating all of the characters in my head. They're so varied and rich that I can't stop thinking of how Mick's cowlick would look or the way Jake Blount's mustache would twist. So in that vein, here's a quick sketch of the enigmatic John Singer.

awesome! I love seeing other illustrators fresh out the characters that come to their mind as they read. Thanks for sharing :)
