NYT Book Review

I will have an illustration in this weekend's New York Times Book Review. The image will accompany a review of Katherine Shonk's novel "Happy Now?" in which a woman  tries to come to terms with her husband's suicide. The heroine also happens to be a dollhouse maker (she builds replicas of all the houses she has lived in) and this detail gains significance as she begins to examine their life together before his death. This is the illustration (above) and a few of my sketches (below.)
