I’m a sucker for images/drawings of Don Quixote (I even had Picasso’s version on my bed sheets as a kid). It might be because the Man of La Mancha’s delusions of grandeur naturally suggest a nice sketchy, abstract illustration style. Or maybe I just like the often elongated forms that exaggerate the skinny Quixote and his horse Rocinante. Either way, I love these illustrations by Roberto Paez from his 1969 book.
