6.8 x 9 Inches, Pitt pens, 2011.
This is the second illustration I have in the final issue of Dark Valentine magazine.
It's illustrating the story "Spring-Heeled Jack" by Anna Caro. It is meant to be a pastiche of "The Illustrated Police News", a weekly illustrated newspaper that was published between 1864 and 1938 and which focused on sensational murders and stories with melodramatic illustrations.
You can read the final issue of Dark Valentine, including Anna's story here - scroll down to get to the final issue.
