Ben Franklin


I was drawing Ben Franklin for a book cover I'm working on, but this is what came out instead. Sometimes that happens and you just have to go with it.

Yeah, that's Ben when he was a young girl. Not many people know that he invented the suction cup dart gun, until now!

I guess that's when writers say they didn't know a character was going to do or say that. I kind of get it now. Who would believe you didn't know you were going to draw this girl when you were meaning to draw Ben Franklin. I like the texture in the background.

I hate it what you're trying to draw a historical figure and you accidentally draw a girl with a gun :)
