Sketch of William Tecumsah Sherman, Union General during the U.S. Civil War. Kris just asked me why I made his head so much smaller than his body. Good question, Honey. Hmmm... well, General Billy's face is so angry that it draws your eye 
directly to it. By making his body bigger I feel it balances out the design. Also, If I had drawn his body to scale I think it would've made the pose less comical and then I wouldn't have had as much of a comment on Billy's demeanor. And I definitely wanted to make a comment on his demeanor. Pen&ink, 2009.
