La Peste

La Peste

This is part of a book portrait commission I did for a wedding gift.  I love the colors!  I was listening to the New Yorker fiction podcast when I was drawing it and just looking at the cliff side I have a visceral experience of remembering the Alice Munro story I was listening to.  It’s almost like the far off town in the book cover was the town in the story.

Book portraits remain my absolute favorite thing to draw.  When I look at the cartoonish colors in this one, I think: is it any wonder?
