This week’s challenge word on the Illustration Friday website is “clumsy”.
Tennessee Williams was one of the greatest American playwrights. He wrote The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Rose Tattoo and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, to name just a few.
Williams used eyedrops on a daily basis and had a ritual in which he applied them. He would sit down, unscrew the cap and place it in his mouth. He’d draw the precise amount of liquid into the eyedropper, lean his head back and, with a gentle squeeze of the rubber bulb, let the drops fall into his eye. On February 25, 1983, in his room at the Hotel Elysee in New York, Williams choked to death on an eyedropper bottle cap.
WOW where do you find the incredible stories? I enjoy your style of drawing and the stories each week.
this is so raw and your lines are so bold, i love the illo!
Great illustration. I think that he might have benefitted from safety instructions like the ones that are on medicine bottles now.
