Cartoon drawing

Cartoon drawing
Creator: Maguire, Gregory
Date: 2010
Drawing of the character Elphaba (a.k.a., The Wicked Witch of the West) rendered by Gregory Maguire. Elphaba appears in the novel entitled "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West," which was written by Maguire. He created this drawing in September 2010. That year, a member of the Library/Archives staff contacted the author to see if he would donate materials from the book or musical to the Kansas Historical Society. Maguire believed he had nothing of interest to donate, so he created this drawing of Elphaba, the main character of his novel, specifically for the society.
