Will Squeak for Food Again


The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men, Gang aft agley. An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain, For promis’d joy!

I’m working in a digital medium again to allow easier experimentation with perspective. Tracing paper used to be the way position and proportion could be tweaked without making multiple erasures on the final surface. Unfortunately as digital medium became more prevalent, tracing paper fell out of fashion. It can still be found, but it carries a more formidable  price tag.
