This is a drawing of Atticus Finch from the fantastic novel 'To Kill A Mockingbird.' I was asked to contribute a drawing to the 'Hey Oscar Wilde! It's Clobberin' Time!' blog. I urge you all to check it out; it's brilliant. The blog has hundreds of fantastic pieces from nearly every great comic artist under the sun. Artists juch as Alex Toth, Bill Sienkiewicz, Joe Kubert, Jordi Bernet, etc. All the artists in question are asked to draw a literary character of their choice.
When asked, i had an auld think for myself and remembered how much i loved studying 'To Kill a Mockingbird' in school. Not only that, but we got to see the movie too, which i also loved. I drew this from my head pretty much. I looked up a photo of Gregory Peck as Atticus to remind myself of what he looked like, but then i went off and did the drawing. I wanted to draw it with Peck in mind, but without making it look just like him. In the end, it turned out just like him anyway!
This was a no-brainer for me, as i got to draw a character i really admired, and got to contribute to a collection with such esteemed talent. Thanks to Steven Gettis for asking me.
