Kavalier & Clay Sketches

Cleaning up my office, I found these early ideas I had for Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay on a 1.44 MB Floppy Disk.

Sketch by Philip Pascuzzo

The Empire State Building is bound and shackled like Harry Houdini. A keyhole knocked out of a postcard I found at the 6th Avenue Flea Market. Both References to the book's "comic book" hero, The Escapist, created by the book's protagonists Joe Kavalier and Sam Clay, a pair of Jewish comic book creators in the 1930s.

Why'd you decide to go with the shackle-free image?
