I was out briefly this morning trying to square off a floor beam with a chainsaw and adze. Since we had a downpour yesterday evening it was humid and not a good day to be outdoors. I decided to work on a drawing I’ve had in mind for awhile. It’s been a long time since I used scratchboard, and it looks like it’ll take a couple tries to get this right. But I do think this is the medium to use for this particular illustration. It’s for a Southern Gothic novel.
