Artist's Description

A second illustration to the brilliant story called “Thomas the Rhymer” by Paul Andruss

steel pen on a A3 Newton & Windsor paper

fragment of the book by P. Andruss:

“Jack lay in the dark, straining his ears for the tiniest sound and jumping at every creak.
“There’s nothing there!” He spoke out loud for courage and snapped the light back on. The tramp from old Gibson’s wall was sitting on his desk, staring at him with his mad dead eyes. Jack was relieved to see him. It was a nightmare that was all. The tramp spooked him and now he was dreaming about him. It was good to be having a normal nightmare after all the other weird dreams. The tramp slid off the desk. Jack heard the desk creak and the muffled thump as the man’s boots hit the carpet. It didn’t seem so much like a dream now, but it was still a nightmare. The tramp walked over and Jack heard each sound. He even heard him breathe. He wanted to scream but he could not move. All he could do was lie helpless in his bed.
The tramp bent over him whispering softly,
“Jack, oh Jack, you were there and now you’re back. Is she lonely, did she say? Does she miss me far away?”’’
