A Trade in Serpents :: Sketch to Final
Happy ground hog day! I just finished up this illustration for a Realms of Fantasy short story called A Trade in Serpents by Alan Smale. Look for in the June issue I believe. There are parts of this illustration I like, but all in all I wish I had a few more days to polish it up. Then again I could probably say that about any of my work.

“I would only add, that this Exporting of Felons to the Colonies, may be consider’d as a Trade, as well as in the Light of a Favour. Now all Commerce implies Returns: Justice requires them: there can be no Trade without them. And Rattle-Snakes seem the most suitable Returns for the Human Serpents sent by our Mother Country....”

Benjamin Franklin, writing as AMERICANUS in
The Pennsylvania Gazette, May 9, 1751.
