Here are some works by the Brazilian artist Joao Ruas. The first, Miles to Merricks, is an illustration based on the novel by Barnaby Ward. The others are from the series ‘Lined in Lead.’ I like both the imaginative quality of his work as well as the direct references to literature. found on his blog.
