Illustrations for the Chicago Reader Fiction Issue 2015

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.

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.
