I borrowed Day 5′s subject from the Boston Globe’s Big Picture post on Pushkar Mela because it reminded me of a favorite illustrated book: James Thurber’s The 13 Clocks, illustrated by Marc Simont. A character that aids the hero in the fairy tale is called The Golux and is described as wearing “an indescribable hat, his eyes were wide and astonished, as if everything were happening for the first time, and he had a dark, describable beard.”
The shading’s pretty disappointing as I was quite tired when I drew it (excuses!) but it gives me something to focus on tomorrow.
PS: Mostly tired from geeking out over this. That is all.
