I had the pleasure of illustrating a short fiction story in the latest issue of Carrier Pigeon, a high-end publication of art and literature founded by fellow alumni of the SVA MFA Illustration program. The book has always some nifty print and print-making features.
"The Speck" is a story about a the passing of time, watches, and a speck on the carpet. It's written by Jonathan Philips.
I used the opportunity for experimentation, created three pieces of art for each of the five illustrations– detailed pen and ink drawings, collage, and expressive brush graphics, and composited all three versions together in a dense final image.

It's a book! On of my spreads in Carrier Pigeon 14 (Volume 2, #4). Order it here.
