Sunday Book Review

I will have an illustration in this Sunday's Book Review. The image accompanies a review by Tim Mohr of Daniel Kehlman's 'Fame: A novel in nine episodes.' In the book, social media and coincidence weave together the stories of otherwise unconnected characters. My challenge for the illustration was to represent the underlying idea of interconnectedness, and also give a nod to the specific plot points mentioned in the review. The solution that was agreed upon was to represent the 'episodes' as pop-up windows on a computer screen. Read the article here.
