Old Major from Animal Farm

Old Major

Watercolor and Ink   (www.stageone.adahost.com)

Another Orwellian pig from the list of characters in George Orwell’s Animal Farm.  This book was used for a musical play and produced by Steve Umberger at the Children’s Theatre of Charlotte many years ago.  All the characters were painted in their animal forms and projected as the actor portraying the animal was introduced. After the play closed, I kept the watercolor renderings and still treasure them today.

  1. I love this whole series. Animal Farm is one of my all-time favorite books, and these illustrations epitomize the major characters. How wonderfully you infuse personality into the obviously realistic portrayals of these animals. How much do you want for them?
