Jack Stacks, or, hoarding


Awhile back I started working on a book about Jack, who collects and stacks stuff. In the end he learns the old adage, 'tis better to give than receive. This drawing is one of the pages. I guess it was partly a 'self-help' action, to write about someone with too much stuff so I could identify. Anyway, it got shelved and now I'm working on one of the many other ideas I have for books. Maybe I'll revisit this one day...

very strong drawing style, I particularly like the elephant and the patterned snakes in the foreground
