I fully admit this one started as a doodle during a work meeting and then I kept working on it, having a good time blending the graphite on the matte photo paper that I rescued from the recycling bin a while back. The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Eliot is one of my favorite classic poems, one I return to again and again (you can see a very early illustration attempt of mine here!). My goal has been to pair the poem with more abstract and non-narrative imagery, but for a much more literal (and superbly executed) illustrated version of the poem, I highly recommend Mr. Julian Peters’ comic. You can read the whole poem here. Have a lovely Wednesday!
