"Tension" for "Illustration Friday"

For this week's "Illustration Friday" and the theme of "Tension," here is another comic panel sneak peek.

This panel is from a story I mentioned previously- the one I drew for an upcoming Anthology that is themed around "War" stories.  The story I illustrated is set in 1917 Petrograd.  Now Saint Petersburg, in 1917 Russia there were serious Bread Riots and a Revolution going on, in addition to WWI.

This panel depicts a little boy maneuvering through an angry crowd of rioters.  He's tiny, so squeezing between their legs.  I can't give away too much, but the other panels have a lot of fighting and fury going on.

So, I thought for this theme of "tension," showing a little boy who feels tense, terrified, and is trying not to be stepped on by the many angry grown-ups felt appropriate.

And now, for links!

Here's an article about Erica, who wrote this comic story that I illustrated:
