this is a drawing inspired by Cormac McCarthy's novel The Road

This is a great book! Read it  read it read it. Boring cover though (?)

The road is beautiful terrible book. The scene with the chained catamites made me weep the first time I read it.

Have you read Gilead by Marilynne Robinson? Its completely different in tone and setting but theres something about the themes and the father-son dynamic in which is very like the road.

i've not, no- will have to check that one out. "beautiful terrible" does sum it up i think!

I like your take. I was equally inspired by the beautiful terribleness of The Road and made this drawing for father's day.Thought I'd share with a fellow illustrator.
