New Sketch Day #2

“Ray has gone bye-bye, Egon... what've you got left?”

Stay Puft

            I will go on record, as saying the artists in these books will have bright futures in the arts.

            Upon being told of the projects time line I instantly knew I wanted to pay homage to the illustration The Battle At Glens Falls by N.C. Wyeth.  The idea spoke to me because
