They hang pigs, don't they?

Another public execution scene from my book about Jheronimus Bosch. Animals would be hanged in medieval times, for al kinds of antropocentric reasons. It goes back to the book of Leviticus. (arguably the most bloodthirsty, psychopathic part from the bible)
In one source Bosch was described as the Elias Canetti of his time, observer of irate crowds. That was one of the best things i read about him.

I love your raw pencil line.

"observer of irate crowds"

I remember reading that the best character in the Simpsons wasn't Homer or Bart, but the collective town of Springfield, the mob of Springfield, and i agree.

Yeah, especially in the episode where Springfield gets duped into ordering for a monorail. :-)
