For this project, I put a twist on the “Pied Piper” fairy tale. In my version, a city populated by mice is plagued by all kinds of bugs! The Piper, a jazz-playing squirrel wearing a zoot suit, rids the town of the bugs. When the townspeople fail to pay him, he leads the children out of town as well. The cityscape was inspired by 1930s New York.
Each spread is 9 x 12″ and done completely in graphite. The entire project took 3 weeks to complete.

I was at the HB Art Center today Centered on the Center Loved your Piped Piper. Nice work.
