Here is my cover illustration for Newcity, a Chicago weekly paper, that came out yesterday. The illustration is based on the feature story, “The Wagon”, by Martin Preib, as a Chicago cop trying to cope with the physical weight of the dead bodies he encounters, as well as the psychological weight of death on the living.
