Little Rock-based composer, artist and educator Phillip Rex Huddleston has created a “Southern Writers” series of prints, featuring portraits of Eudora Welty, Maya Angelou, Ralph Ellison, Mark Twain and others. The series, available for now in a bundle of five prints (Truman Capote, Carson McCullers, Charles Portis, Alice Walker and Tennessee Williams), is available at Huddleston's Etsy shop.

"I definitely had my favorite southern writers in mind for these first fifteen," Phillip told us, "but I decided to crowd source who I should draw. I put up a Facebook post that got a decent amount of input from fellow bibliophiles. This was my first project to ever use Copic markers. I'm so pleased with the values and textures I could get from them. I haven't been this proud of my ink work in a long time."
