"Everybody has something to conceal."
Sam Spade, the San Francisco private eye, is the best known protagonist of author Dashiel Hammett’s hardboiled detective stories of the early 1930s. Cold, cynical, and morally ambiguous, Spade investigates cases of murder and treachery out of his office on 111 Sutter Street, most famously in the novel The Maltese Falcon and its subsequent film adaptations. His tough and shifty demeanor has influenced the perception of the private detective as a hard and outwardly emotionless loner, able to get the best of anybody in pursuit of his own justice.

My contribution to the upcoming antihero-themed art zine, Reprobates and Renegades.
