I have a couple of illustrations in this week’s Chicago Reader 15th annual Fiction Issue, for Latoya Wolfe’s story, “Migration”. The story is about the now-demolished Robert Taylor Homes.

Cover for Newcity’s Year End super guide to Chicago.
Had a lot of fun with this. The birds, letters and stars were actually cut out of black paper, which was then scanned.
With so much violence and chaos in the news, this was a quiet, personal response to the current state of things… Possibility and hope for tranquility and peace.
New illustration for the Chicago Reader’s Fiction Issue 2014, out this week!
The issue features a juried selection of new stories by Chicago authors. I was asked to create an illustration for Heather Michael’s story, “Diáspora.” The story deals with a poor, fragmented family held captive in a cycle of fear and ransom by the mob.
You can read the full story here, or pick up a copy of the issue. Other illustrations include lovely submissions by Hye Jin Chung, Lilli Carré, Johnny Sampson, and others.
