Neill Drawing

After a busy holiday season, complete with travel and a computer meltdown, I'm finally getting back to posting.

Here's a nice John R. Neill drawing, probably published but location unknown. It appears to be a fashionable young man, carrying his traveling bag and perhaps a tennis racket? He might be headed off to college, or maybe returning home to visit. In many ways, he has the appearance of an adult Button-Bright – still traveling and unconcerned about where.

The suitcase makes me think of the black bag of magic tools carried by the Wizard of Oz.
