The first illustration is about Hannah Twynnoy, the first lady to be killed by a tiger from a traveling roadshow in the 1700's. The artwork gave me the chance to mess around with some more hand drawn type, which i've been dying to do. I worked for so long hand scratching this type in a miniscule stroke weight that I'm now suffering with Carpal tunnel syndrome (check out the detail), ouch :(( and now having to take a rest from illustrating for a little while if i can. The second illustration, Sloth - what more can i say but they are ace and i want to draw many more!
