The Book Thief


Okay, so I recently finished reading The Book Thief, and I was totally inspired.  It's a great book, albeit it can be REALLY sad.  But anybody who even remotely knows me knows how much I like sad things, so this was right up my alley.  That being said, you should all read this book.  I doubt you'll be disappointed.

The book is full of great Imagery and I couldn't help myself but create some illustrations for it. Here's a synopsis for anyone who may be interested. This is the first image of three where Death (the narrator) sees the little girl Liesel (the protagonist).  Their encounters are obviously during sad and poignant moments in Liesel's life, but boy do they make for great illustrations!

Stay tuned for the second and third renditions.
