Anton Chekhov

Anton Chekhov was a Russian writer in the late nineteenth century. He is most famous for his plays and numerous short stories. Popular playwrite Niel Simon based his hilarious play, The Good Doctor, on these short stories.
When my high school chose The Good Doctor for our one-act play, I was asked to draw an ink portrait of Chekhov for posters, programs, and other publicity. Notice the intensity in Chekhov's face.
(p.s. I actually got to play Chekhov in that play!)

The Scarlet Pimpernel

"We seek him here, we seek him there,
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in heaven? Is he in hell?
That demmed elusive Pimpernel."
(Baroness Orczy, The Scarlet Pimpernel, "Chapter 12" )
