Pictures are pretty. Sometimes, people make them for me.
After a little conversation with my pal and rad illustrator, Drew Shannon, he whipped up this for my short story, “Chasing Steam.” You should really check out his website, specifically his newest piece he did as a homage to Radiolab. He’s a fellow to watch, for sure.
He asked me a few weeks ago to give him something to illustrate, so I pointed him at my blog. Selfishly. I had wanted to do something like this for a while. Within the hour, this had popped into my inbox.
I really like his style, it always has a great texture. and we’ve worked together on a few projects now. There have been talks about more weird, little collaborations between us. We are aiming for weekly or bi-weekly, but we all know how those things work out.
