Oliver Twist

September already, which means it's back to school for a lot of children and teachers, mercifully this doesnt affect me, haha, however to mark this I am going to post a recent ink illustration of a scene from Charles Dickens' novel Oliver Twist, Oliver is in the workhouse asking for some more gruel, whilst the other children look on aghast. School can't be as bad as this place can it?

This is drawn in ink with dip pen with a very fine and scratchy nib on heavy paper.
