Chief James Holy Crow

A portrait is so much more than an image. We had an opportunity to compile several historical illustrations into a composition that captured the essence of this proud individual.

The illustration was not featured in any published articles or museum pieces. The illustration was initially used as a warm-up activity for illustrating a few other illustrations where a pencil and paper aesthetic enhanced the narrative. We present this image as an example of how detail and volume are important to depict an accurate accounting of historic individuals.
