Z is for Zaphod Beeblebrox
My last Alphabooks entry is Zaphod Beeblebrox from the science fiction story “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Douglas Adams.
And that concludes my 26 letter journey in the Alphabooks project. It has been a fun and enriching experience and I got to know a lot of book characters I didn’t know before, and of course it was an excellent drawing training for me.

U is for Úrsula Iguarán
Úrsula Iguarán is without question the most important female character in the novel, the matriarch of the Buendía family. She is described as a small, active, severe countrywoman and she lives over 120 years old.
I chose to paint her in her later years when she was senile and blind, but never lost her spirit.
S is for Sancho Panza
My Alphabooks entry for this week is Sancho Panza with is donkey Rucio, a character from the novel “El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha” (“The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha”) by Miguel de Cervantes. Sancho is Don Quixote’s faithful companion and squire throughout the the novel.
