Ordinarily, I would have been done with this illustration days ago. Preparations for GenCon are slowing this image down, but I hope to have it finished before the convention.

Damsels, strumpets, and witches are always getting tied to poles, chained down, or strung up some other way. I thought I would ignore convention and make my 'in distress' figure a dude. Initially, I had his head turned away from the viewer. Then I realized what a mistake that was. If this were happening to me, I think I'd be looking away, pretending or denying or disbelieving what was about to occur.

Here's the midway color step and the final for this illustration. It should come as no surprise that there is no sculpture in all the world I am more anxious to see in person than The Ecstasy of St. Theresa of Avila. I'd walk through the Sistine Chapel blindfolded in order to see that sculpture if I had to.
