I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I can easily say that I have now had my fill of turkey.
Back to Great Expectations…
I’m on page 116 of the book and Day 106 of reading a page a day and 106 pieces of artwork! On page 116, we find out that the stranger in the bar is Jaggers, a well known lawyer from London. He walks with Pip and Joe to their home to discuss some private business with them. He says he is there only to represent a confident agent (a client of his).
He tells Joe that he has an offer to take Pip from his apprenticeship. Does Joe care to stand in Pip’s way? No, of course not.
Here is my little humble artwork for the day, completely drawn with some very old Prismacolor markers. Most are 25 years old, and still work! This shows a sad Joe and a slightly happy younger Pip.
