Calendar for The Progressive
posted: September 17, 2007
Nick Jehlen of The Progressive contacted me a while back about doing an illustration for their 2008 calendar. He wanted a two color portrait of Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, Wobbly agitator and founder of the ACLU.

I did a little reading up on her and found that Theodore Dreiser referred to her as an "East Side Joan of Arc". I had my springboard, and dove right in.

Some sketches below;  in some I tried combining Lady Justice with Joan of Arc.
