Cover sketch for "Independent Dames-The Women and Girls of the American Revolution", written by Laurie Halse Anderson, illus.d by me, edited by Kevin Lewis and publ.d by Simon&Schuster. The soldier playing the flute was supposed to be a woman who has disguised herself as a man in order to fight. But she just looked to much like a man here so, among other edits, we decided to put her in a skirt. It worked better that way and made it to the cover. Pen&ink, 2007.
