BOSTON GLOBE BOOK REVIEW - Studio 1482 Illustration


I’ve worked for the Globe before but this was my first large book review illustration.
This piece was really fun to do and as usual I learned about something new, the Federal Writer’s Project, a depression era creation of the WPA. Basically, all levels of writer were hired to document the country state by state. Amazing, a true reportage.

The book reviewed was Republic of Detours: How the New Deal Paid Broke Writers to Rediscover America by Scott Borchert. I’m looking forward to reading this book.

Below is the final, in print and the sketches.
