Joan of Arc Spot

I'm pretty sure this was my first ever published illustration.  It was drawn for The Zinester's Guide to Portland.  I was living in Portland at the time, and I remember I biked down to draw this sculpture in person.  I had a horrible bike wreck on my way there - flipped over my handlebars, bent my front wheel in half - so this was drawn while I was bloody and bruised.  That might be why it never occurred to me that Joan of Arc is supposed to be carrying a flag in this sculpture.  I guess it was being repaired or something on the day that I drew it.  Oh well, what you see here is what made it into the book!

I am posting this old work to get it back online after I stopped using Flickr to display my illustration work.
