2014 Vonnegut Illustrations
I started the project with the goal of reading each of Vonnegut’s fourteen novels. It took just a few pages of the first book to be taken aback by all the wonderful visuals his words created. I started bookmarking every page that had something that I wanted to illustrate. By the time I reached the end, the book had become completely dog-eared. I found Vonnegut’s prose colorful and illustrative, yet beautifully simple. I used my Sharpie to somehow capture that simplicity the best I could. I spent a year reading and illustrating all of Vonnegut’s novels. The project was completed in 2014 and shown at the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library in Indianapolis, Indiana. The original illustrations are part of the library’s permanent collection.
