Welcome to Paper Castles

[click image to enlarge]
This set of illustrations depict the short story, "Pig" by Roald Dahl. The story is about a boy who is raised vegetarian by his aunt. After his aunt passes away, he finally discovers how delicious pork is, and is determined to find out how the pig is prepared. Needless to say, his trip to the meat packing plant does not end well.

Each wooden panel measures 10.5"x 12". The first is a 5 color silkscreen, ballpoint pen, and gloss medium. The other 5 are rendered in ballpoint pen over various washes, and gloss medium as the top coat.
