For a article in Dension magazine about Fairy Tales and the changing nature of how these stories are told — from Grimm’s tales, to the super-scrubbed happy Disney tales through to the darker popularity of shows like Breaking Bad now. Fairy tale expert Maria Tatar also discusses how some of the world’s oldest tales help us navigate modern life.
Big thanks to Erin from Em Dash for this very interesting project!

Family Life- NYT Book Review Cover
This is the second time I illustrated for author Akhil Sharma’s writing. The first one was for his New Yorker short story “We didn’t like him”. I have always loved the beautiful melanchonia in his work.
Family Life is about an immigrant family from India living in New York, with 2 children. One of the brothers, Birju, suffers from brain damage from a swimming pool accident. This incident not only impairs Birju, but also his parents. They are blinded with grief and neglects to provide the nurture and attention the younger brother Ajay needs. Check out the book review by Sonali Deraniyagala here.
What I tried to capture in this image is how the pool has segregated and orphaned Ajay from the rest of the family. I curl my toes when I am trying to endure something painful, so I added that detail.
Big thanks to AD Nicholas Blechman for this great project! Look for it in the Sunday paper!
