Illustrate Harry Crews’ memoir, A Childhood: The Biography of a Place for use as a book cover. “Nearly everybody I knew had something missing, a finger cut off, a toe split, an ear half-chewed away, an eye clouded with blindness from a glancing fence staple. And if they didn’t have something missing, they were carrying scars from barbed wire, or knives, or fishhooks.” –Harry Crews (1935-2012)
The illustration is a response to the memoir's title and setting (Bacon County, Georgia), during The Great Depression. The medium is watercolor and graphite on paper.
