“Little Men” is based upon an illustration on the inside cover of Louisa May Alcott’s classic of the same title. I have yet to read the book but I’ve always been attracted to classic line illustrations that have been scribbled upon or vandalized by children as the copy I obtained had been. I wanted to keep a similar feel of this country side picnic that’s gone awry due to weather systems or an inexplicable eruption of line and form.
The image is very intriguing. That other world exploding out of the center of the image really pulls me in.
Thanks Scott. The original image that inspired this work had an illustration of a long haired poodle that halfway disappeared into the binding. One of those great overlooked printing mistakes
