My sketch of Lawrence of Arabia

This is my sketch of the great Thomas Edward Lawrence better known as Lawrence of Arabia. T.E. Lawrence was regarded as one of the last true heroes of the British Empire by Winston Churchill (According to the Rise and Fall of the British Empire by Lawrence James). Lawrence of Arabia helped topple the Ottoman Empire and had a profound effect on the making of the modern Middle East. When I was a kid, I had a great book called, Lawrence of Arabia. The book has impressive loose line illustrations by illustrator Gil Walker. The book is still proudly sitting on my book shelf.
