Bernard Kornblum from The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay

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.
Cool book, you should read it.
