Dot and Dash 02

Charles Schultz (Peanuts) advised to let characters reveal themselves as you draw them, so that’s what I’m trying to do.

My fan(s) will be interested to note that I’m getting some inspiration reading Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyon, written in 1678 as a Christian allegory.* I’m finding it really sweet, in spite of my self. I would not have even heard of the book if I hadn’t started re-reading Little Women, one of my favorite childhood stories (though I had an abridged, illustrated version).

Style note: I’ve added color because I don’t have control over my black-and-white.

*Kindle version only $.99

  1. Little Women was one of my very favorite books when I was younger also. I think I may have even read the long version. Also read Little Men and Jo’s Boys.

  2. Never did read Pilgrim’s Progress though.

  3. @Anne, I think Pilgrim’s Progress would be of interest to people who do bible study. As “Christian” talks to various people along the way, Biblical references are given for their dialog — actually more clever than I’m making it sound.

  4. Thanks. I may try to read it some time soon.
