The Devil's Baby

This project was an alphabet book, based on an old Irish ballad called 'The Women Are Worse Than The Men', in which the Devil takes a shrewish wife down to Hell, only to return her because she's too irritating. I liked the idea, but thought that children would respond better to an annoying new brother or sister.

I started doing the pictures in pencil, with a somewhat different Devil, but I ended up doing it in watercolor.
