Oh how I love this, let me count the ways. Mackie’s illustrations are all original. Every single one of them. And this one stands out, to me, as one of his best.
The expression of Achilles is priceless and the mouth being near the bottom is a fun touch. It pretty much negates the need for that nose guard - which I love.
I suggest bouncing around Mackie’s portfolio and following him on the Twitter.
