The Outsider




I am never sure if entering competitions is a good idea, the risk of damaging a fragile ego is so great!  However as I get older I seem to be less upset by the results, so here goes.  This is my entry for the Folio Society's competition to illustrate "The Outsider" by Albert Camus.  I re read the book a while ago and have not been able to get it out of my head and this style (based on the art of Modigliani with a nod towards Schiele) was what illustrated my dreams,  Entry number 1,347 I think!  Fingers crossed!!
