Double page spread sketch illustration used to sell the concept of "Gaijin-American Prisoner of War", a graphic novel written and illus.d by me and to be publ.d by Disney/Hyperion 2014. Much has changed since this rendition of the story however this moment has remained intact. It's 1942 and Irish American Adeline has recv.d a letter from the government stating that her 13 year old Japanese/Irish American son Karl was to be imprisoned in a concentration camp due to his race. The letter also informs her that she is not required to accompany her son to prison due to her race. Infuriated, Adeline marched with Karl in tow down to the army office where she soon got into a bit of a disagreement with Captain Jackson. Pencil, 2009.
