Newsies! Jack, Crutchie, Specs, and Romeo. I saw the tour cast in SF last month, and sketched the boys from memory on the train… then decided to finish them off now and make them nice. Trying to make an effort to see more of my idea sketches through to finish.

I improvised a little on costuming based on photo refs of different productions. It seems that the newsies who aren’t Jack, David, or Crutchie switch up their outfits? Also the newspapers are just some scans I found from the 1890s-1900s, nothing special.
