Heckhole in Context

The previous Progress Report featured a postcard sent by Euell from Heckhole Station in Michigan. Above you see that postcard in context.

Each segment of Euell's journey is described in the book via four separate elements: a simple two-color illustration showing how Euell traveled this leg of the journey, the postcard front, the postcard back, and a full-color illustration that shows what actually occurred (which often doesn't square with what Euell writes in the postcards, as you can see).

Our class had the final critique for this project on Thursday, and I've been beat ever since. But I should have four of these segments finished by May, and will be posting each illustration as they are completed. But for now, in honor of World Book Night, I'm going to go read someone else's book.
