Hole on the Corner
“Shriek, shriek,” said Mama Regina, but her voice was muffled.
‐ R. A. Lafferty, "The Hole on the Corner"
Hands are busy finishing up the fine details of the next Feast of Laughter, the R.A. Lafferty bookzine. To celebrate their hard work and as a belated hurrah for Lafferty's birthday (Nov 7), here is an illustration of Ray's classic short story Hole in the Corner.
This was my second illustration still learning the basics of Inkscape. I remember going to a lot of trouble to get what few details there were of the monstrous Homer into the illustration.
Only after I had finished did I realize I'd made the human legs short.
Thus, the Hoose family is a smaller family.
