This illo was for a book review of Mary Karr's new memoir "Lit". I've never done a job like this - generally with the stuff i get to do the articles have a set idea or theme and i can kinda just play with that - in this case i felt like i had alot of interpreting to do and it was a real workout. "Lit" essentially has many meanings in the memoir, but I chose to focus on the authors drinking and its destructive coarse throughout her life. The memoir also speaks of fire alot - when i combined the two i thought of a Molotov cocktail - a really good solution because it sort of ties everything together but also comments on the destructive and at times rebellious nature of her life. I was really really happy to be able to work on this and the AD Jane made it really easy and created a nice creative environment for me. Also, fun to push some new work and be paid for it.
Oh, and Jill and I just moved into our new place in Toronto and its really great - stop by wont you?! Thanks for looking and reading - Oh - i attached a rejected rough - really liked this idea too.
