An illustration for the Financial Times book review section, possibly my favourite jobs to do. This one is for ‘Dissident Gardens’ – a new novel about jewish communists in New York. The dominant characters are Rose, and her daughter Miriam who is part of the folk/hippy scene.
I get the book review to read, send a rough, do the illustration over a couple of days and see it in the paper at the weekend. Magic. Initial rough below.
