For the last few months, the New York Times has been running a series of articles about daily life in different parts of the country in a feature called "Out Here". Last week I was commissioned to do illustrations for two stories in the series: one about an old fashioned gas station in St. Michaels, Maryland; and another about the life on the river in Lebanon, Missouri. (You can read the articles here, and here.) Thanks to Anne Leigh for the assignment! These stories were a lot of fun.
