Justin's back!

This is another illustration (mostly graphite, with the wagon and most of its passengers borrowed from the cover painting) from the last book in the Shaker Kids series. It shows Colonel Barker seen from behind, left foreground. As blog-spotters will recall, Justin posed in several layers of historic costume in 90-degree heat to give me the resource photos for that sleazy character. This is not to say that Justin is a sleazy character: au contraire, BEAR! Justin’s own character is totally sleazeless. Thanks again, Justin.
