This is my first prize drawing (done in the inside cover to my 2008 sketchbook) for three winners of my Fan Art Contest.
This one goes out to *Keliane
who made an awesome little video posted over at YouTube. Kelli asked me for a drawing of Nathan Hale, and when I think about him, I always picture him talking or reading. But I mostly draw him talking in the comic, so I took this opportunity to draw the other side of him.
Even when he was stationed outside of Boston during the seige (75-76) his army diary records that Captain Hale spent many days just like this: nose in book.
