This weeks practice illustration comes from THE GRAVEYARD BOOK by Neil Gaiman, Chapter 5. The book won the Newbery award for Children's Literature. If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend that you do, and soon. It is beautifully written, and a personal favorite of mine. Here is the book description, as listed on Amazon:
It takes a graveyard to raise a child.
Nobody Owens, known as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely
normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, being raised by ghosts, with a
guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead.
There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy—an ancient Indigo Man, a
gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible
Sleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, he will be in danger from the
man Jack—who has already killed Bod's family.
