Spring Heeled Jack

Spring Heeled Jack

My Entry for the AOI illustration competition, to show a character from a London story, song or Urban Legend.
Spring Heeled Jack was a bogey man sort of Urban myth, supposedly first sighted terrorising women near Clapham Common in the Victorian Era.
He was reported to be many things from a demon, an aristocrat in a mask and cape, a flying man, or the devil himself.
Purported to be able to blow blue flames from his lips and leap enormous heights in a single bound…. hence the name ‘Spring Heeled Jack’.
Several Penny Dreadfuls’ were written about him and his frightening exploits.
