Illustration Friday: "Excess"

Grimble Crossing the Alps

Here is Adolphus M. Grimble. He is an excessive buffoon. And he loves portraiture.

------------------------------------------

He is the Proprietor of the Manufactory, he is the pyshical manifestation of overbearing personalities, he is Adolphus M. Grimble.

He is also from my book, Jack & Inar, scheduled for a 2008 release, written and illustrated by me.

On a completely seperate note, this piece was just accepted into the 50th edition of The Society of Illustrators Annual. A dream come true for me. I found out on Tuesday.
