Secret Project Revealed: Day 3

Background: You’ve read about the secret project in my Art Diary…now, here’s what it’s all about.

I have provided illustrations for a short story competition, September Slam 2018, at Fictive Dream, an online literary magazine specializing in short stories. The Slam is featuring seven stories this week, September 24-30, one a day, and I did the illustration for each one. And…I’ll be writing some posts on my experiences in depicting these stories soon. Keep an eye out for them.

But for now, let’s read! Today’s story is Eat to Live, by Sarah Daniels.

Here is the illustration. Look it over and then go and read the story. Did I capture the essence of the author’s work?

    Thank you, this means a lot to me. I didn’t think about the authors’ reactions to my illustrations until I was nearing the end of the project and then panic hit me – what if no one felt I represented the stories well? I am so happy you liked what I did, and you are a wonderful writer. I enjoyed looking at your blog and finding more of your work to read.
