Bachelor project: Bar



This is one of the last pieces I did for my bachelor project this semester. I illustrated a short story by a famous american writer,(who nobody seems to know in Germany) but I won't say which one, just that the story is from the early sixties. Maybe you'll see when I post the cover.

It's actually one of the last scenes from the story, but I wanted to post it first, because I like it best.

This was the very first sketch and it's pretty rough:

Isherwood?

Maike said...

No, it's not him. It's John Cheever "The Swimmer".
