rendered with pen and feather.

Cover art for Days Like This Are Necessary, by Walter Bargen (Missouri's first poet laureate). This is the 6th book I've illustrated for Walter. The book was published by BkMk press, University of Missouri at Kansas City.
His newest book, Endearing Ruin, published in Germany, will be out later this year. I just posted the cover art here.
