Powerful illustration. I'd read neither the book nor seen the movie, but it's clear he's about to go on the rampage.  Them little pics on the bottle....

There's so many ways I love this for portraying the image conveyed in the book as well as pretty much summing up how I feel right now with my massive workload, stress levels included, lmao. xD

It's the better Jack Torrance version for the novel!

Everyone's too stuck on the movie as opposed to the book, which is rather ridiculous considering just how genius the book is in comparison (though Jack Nicholson was awesome. There's no denying that).
It's nice to see that someone actually payed tribute to the book (enough of the axe, mallets are ten times more terrifying), and drew their OWN Jack as opposed to Nicholson.

May I just say that I LOVE YOU for drawing the book version of him? I swear, most of the time it feels like people don't even know there's a book! This is lovely; it looks a lot like I always imagined him, except I thought he was redhaired, or reddish-blond at least. Amazing job!

Finally something that stays true to the BOOK and not the movie. Very nice work.

Bludgeoning and blunt trauma-inducing terror.

B-E-A ootiful... I especially admire how you designed your own version of Mr. Torrance, instead of using Jack Nicolson. Fave!

Very nice job. :) I love that book, & the movie--if not the best adaptation of King's book--is also very awesome. :D
