For the second week I have decided to illustrate Bernard Kornblum for Alphabooks from a personal favorite, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. The book is a fictional time piece retelling of the golden age of comics and the two men who helped forged it. In the earlier chapters Bernard Kornblum helps tutor Josef Kavalier in the ways of magic tricks and escape arts until Josef has to escape himself from Prague during it's Nazi occupancy. The character is intensely interesting and a great father like figure to Josef. He is also reminiscent of a much older and more bearded Harry Houdini.

So in the wake of Alphabeasts, Andrew Neal has started a new alphabetical illustration project called Alphabooks (http://alphabooks.tumblr.com/). It's the same concept as before, going through the alphabet and illustrating each letter to a theme, this time it happens to be characters from books and stories. Seeing as how Alphabeasts kept me on the ball for illustrating weekly, I was more than excited to jump on this project.
