Today is the late George MacDonald Fraser's birthday. He's best known for his Harry Flashman character from the entertaining and (in my mind) educational Flashman Papers series. I love these books, and his other writings, too, especially his essays on historical film. Fraser was responsible for influencing my artistic and literary development in a number of ways, but the most pronounced is the consideration of the ethical responsibility one has when handling events of or figures from the past.
So here's a drawing of Harry Flashman to commemorate the occasion!
