Atticus Finch by crumblygumbly Atticus Finch by crumblygumbly
A redraw of this: [link]

I always meant to redo that picture, since I liked the concept and did it so damn sloppily the first time around.

Decided to do this today. Was feeling slightly down, but Atticus makes me feels better. Just a damn great character from a damn great book. One of the great American heroes, and he can't even fly.

"Just a damn great character from a damn great book."
I'm with you on that!
When I read To Kill A Mockingbird in class for a unit we were doing for english, I googled Atticus Finch and this was one of the first results on Bing (my tablet uses bing as its main browser ^^; ), and I've been looking for the image since!
I love the concept you have in this picture. It's kinda comical in a sense and also REALLY true.

Brilliant! It's amazing how his image has stood the test of time and he's still considered a hero. Absolutely beautiful, my friend!

Words cannot describe how badass Atticus is! He is EPIC! Also, when first read the bok, I imagined Atticus to have a badass beard, but alas, he has no beard...but is still freaking awesome! :P :D

Hello.
I have a question: May I please have your permission to put this design on a t-shirt? It's a wonderful image of one of my favourite characters of all time, and I would be extremely grateful if you allowed me to use it.
Furthermore, my mother, an English teacher, who does a novel study of the book with her students, would be quite pleased if I recieved permission to use this, as she'd like to show it to her class.
Of course, I completely understand if you refuse, but it would honestly make my month if you allowed me to put this image on a t-shirt.

I'm fine with you putting it on a tshirt, so far as you mean that it's something you're going to wear personally, and not something you're going to sell or mass produce or anything like that :3 Then we'd have to talk a bit more in depth.

But if it's just for your personal use only, then go right ahead! I'd be grateful if you took a picture of it when you were done and show me.

fabulous. the book kind of drags for me (i have a short attention span and we're reading it in class so it's like 50 times slower than usual) BUT, i adore Atticus.

You should really do a Boo Radley variation like this as well. If Atticus is that of Superman, then truly Boo is the Batman like entity, acting in the night and hardly seen until he chooses to appear.

Yes! By all that is awesome and good in this world, YES. Atticus Finch will always be my favorite literary figure, and this concept is beyond epic.

Love the black and white combined with the color of the insignia. ^^

I always thought Gregory Peck's portrayal of Atticus should be a model for how Clark Kent should look. Wonderful!
