Ink and tea drawing of Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) I did after reading Gregory Maguire’s splendid book Wicked.
Elphaba is a truly amazing character. An Atheistic hero, an animal/Animal rights activist, a non-conformist and an intellectual. Elphaba remains a strong woman throughout her whole life – she has to, in a way, because she can’t cry. Tears literally burn her.
