A sketch of Susan B. Anthony for "Elizabeth Started All the Trouble", by Doreen Rappaport, illus.d by me and to be publ.d by Disney/Hyperion. Wanted to give Ms. Anthony this spirited look on her face rather than the docile or bored look I've seen in so many photos and renderings of her during her day. While I certainly don't want her image to scream "I got attitude!", I do want to show that this is a person who, for the 45 yrs. she was active in the suffrage movement, made at least 75 national, public speeches annually. And that's using the 1850 through 1890 mode of travel.
This was one tough, wily sister.
