Short fiction is a great well to draw from, and Roberto Bolaño is always a fascinating and disorienting author to illustrate. Above is a full-page illustration for the Mexican Manifesto piece in this week's New Yorker, and below are the thumbnail ideas and slightly more developed composition sketches. AD Jordan Awan.

This month's Medical Mystery in The Washington Post followed a young woman who suffered from a seemingly undetectable gallbladder deficiency. The thumbnails and sketches below were inspired by the dismissive relationships she encountered moving from doctor to doctor. Art directed by Lisa Schreiber.

Yesterday morning I received an email from Matt Dorfman at The New York Times about an illustration for today's Op-Ed by Mohsin Hamid on the recent extremist violence between India and Pakistan and the growing public outcry. I pitched ideas of a flaking icon of militarism or figures coming together in the wake of destruction to see if either struck a chord. The flaking fresco won out, and twelve hours later it's in the paper. Thanks again to Matt Dorfman.

Above is an illustration in this month's British GQ on stalkers in the world of literature, and James Lasdun's book "Give Me Everything You Have On Being Stalked." Sketches below largely inspired by the great cat-and-mouse scenes in films like The Third Man and Night of the Hunter. AD Warren Jackson.
