Rest in Peace

Here's the final illustration for my thesis show. It's the actual grave of Casey Jones in Jackson, TN... however, the stone wasn't placed until many years later by a group in New York wanting to honor him in a more appropriate fashion. Jones' grave is also in a church graveyard... not an empty field... but the general look is accurate.

Amazingly, Jones' pocket watch survived the wreck and is still intact. His original watch is on display at The Casey Jones Museum in Jackson, TN. If you're a Casey Jones fan, it's a great place to visit.
