Illustration Friday: Hat

• Sitting Bull (1831-1890)
• Hat (lifespan unknown)

Based on a photo from the Western History Department, Denver Public Library.

Also included in this post is the 'J, K, & L' portion of the critter alphabet. At this rate, I should have all twenty-six letters done by mid-2009.

Peace to you all, and may you wear your hats in good health.

Great portrait here! No bull! =sorry)
And your alphabet is coming along beautifully- you'll have to publish a book of it!!

Ummm, Sitting Bull looks beautiful tonight, and what an amazing face, and a wonderful rendering by you Twisselman, wow!
Love the letters, especially Joy the Jellyfish, and so I agree with the Doodleman, and the publishing of a book, because each letter looks like it's waiting for it's story to be told.
