This lithograph glows in the dark, with 19" x 12" paper size and 15" x 8" image size.
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog...
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
One of these campers might be scaring the others with these lines from Shakespeare recalled from high school. Another might go for the tale of the ancient Indian chief whose spirit was said to haunt the night. At any rate, it's doubtful the wildlife give a hoot. (Well, maybe a hoot or two!) The bat and bullfrog go about their business, both nocturnal creatures, bat hunting and bullfrog mating, revelling in the darkness. On the other hand, the creeped-out campers seem to huddle ever closer to the embers and each other, delighting in scary tales and s'mores.
This artwork comes from an illustration Charley originally did for the Ford Times magazine in May 1968, about a canoe trip down the South Fork of the Cumberland River in Kentucky.
