Whispering Sphinx

This is a pin-up done for my old Kubert School bud, Tim Truman, that ran in the back of his SCOUT title. The character is “Doody”, a blind mystic journeying across post apocalyptic America. I was inspired by a couple old engravings I’d seen of Arab sorcerers with their ears to the lips of the half buried Sphinx, and applied the idea to Mount Rushmore. Pen and ink, 1986.
