Inktober 25: Rat-Boy
A6, Entirely in ink except for the stars which are in gouache, thrown in with a toothbrush.
Fan art of The Troubles of Magnet Boy and Other Gloomy Tales, written by Tom Burleigh and illustrated by Kay Dawson, from which:
Rat-Boy wasn’t really
a hero at all,
and he certainly wasn’t a boy!
In fact she was simply a rat I dressed up,
and played with like she was a toy.
I somewhat suspect
that she took them to heart,
those playtime delusions of mine,
for I’ve seen her flying
at night through the skies,
no doubt on his way to fight crime.
