Mister Hyde

For last week's Illustration Friday theme of "Hide", I thought I would go with something from the book I am currently reading ... Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. A great buy (even if it hadn't been only 99¢ at Goodwill), I am loving the way it is reading right now ... literarily comfortable and greatly intriguing.

I did this piece with a mechanical pencil and some of my new PrismaColor markers that the Jodie got me for Christmas. It came out really well, though I still need to take a chance on trying to blending multiple colors together and not stick to just grays and black.

Oh, and if you think I cheated by using "hyde" instead of "hide", I say blame Mr. Utterson. He's the one that said,"if he be Mr. Hyde ... I shall be Mr. Seek." ;)
If he could but once set eyes on him, he thought the mystery would lighten and perhaps roll altogether away ... At least it would be a face worth seeing: the face of a man who was without bowels of mercy: a face which had but show itself to raise up ... a spirit of enduring hatred.

Tuesday, for tirades and tears
Seeing you cry, hurts me inside. It cuts deep at my heart, and bleeds emotions I can't hide. As you trade your wisdom for fear, you turn your face down. There is anger and ire ...
