This is a small sketch I made based on Mitch Albom's characters from the popular book the Five People You Meet in Heaven. It's one of my dearest books, and I thought it would be fun to illustrate the characters based on the description in the book.
1. The Blue Man: Middle-aged man. Narrow, stooped shoulders, naked from the waist up. Blue skin and belly sagged over his belt, hair closely cropped.
2. The Captain: Full head of dark hair and looked to be only in his 30s.
3. Ruby: She's a widow in her 50s with sagging cheeks, rose-colored lipstick, wore a wire-rimmed glasses over her eyes. She presented herself as a classy lady, holding a parasol with both hands.
4. Marguerite: Eddie's late wife. Beautiful olive skin and dark, hair falling over one eye. Coffee colored eyes.
5. Tala: 6 years old, Filipino, died of fire. Cinnamon complexion, dark hair. Full lips, gapped teeth. Wore traditional clothes.
