This is a remarque I did in a Hodder (U.K.) edition of The Green Mile. I do no preliminary sketches in pencil because book paper is soft and absorbent and you don't want to start erasing on it. The collector wanted an electric chair. I started drawing in ink, beginning at the top and working my way down but not really knowing where I was going: I wanted something more ghoulish than the chair I did for the Dutton chapbooks, so I did not mind the distortions that came with having made no preliminary sketch. And, the collector was very happy with it.
