"...but he zigged and I zagged and the ground was icy and I ended up on my tuchas watching my good-for-nuthin' hat roll right out into the middle of Main Street...

A rare opportunity presented itself this evening, so I took it and shot some images that were requested by ~Jetrie
to (hopefully) aid in the illustration of a story on which they are collaborating. I believe these are going to be used as pose references, but if you can find other uses for them so much the better.
The images featuring this character are subtitled 'sam', which stands for 'slipped a mickey' not for Sam Spade (Sam would never look this unkempt
- even after having been slipped a mickey...)
