Please forgive this flawed drawing. I'm reading John The Balladeer right now, a book by Manly Wade Wellman about his hero Silver John and I really didn't like how he looked on the cover so I was sketching him in my sketchbook closer to how I saw him.According to Wellman he's supposed to look like a young Johnny Cash. the Silver John stories are supernatural horror fantasy stories that take place in the Apalachians of North Carolina. This North Carolina is populated with all sorts of starnge creatures and witches. I highly recommend tracking these books down, your best bet is a used book store.
