I’m loving this novel, Killing Commendatore by Haruki Murakami. The story, the visuals-in-my-head, the treasure hunt of symbolism, the intrigue. This is the kind of novel I want to go on and on and still, can’t put it down so it goes even faster. If you’re reading along, this drawing is of a quote on page 203.
I’m not sure there is such a thing. Yesterday’s reading left me with competing haikus and I realized it was because of Haruki Murakami’s masterful writing. I decided to let them both exist within this painting.
I’m still trying to figure out how to illustrate the books I read as I read them. I know I could easily illustrate out-of-copyright books, but there’s little fun in that for me. Today I’ve haiku’d a scene from Haruki Murakami’s Killing Commendatore. All words are my own. The illustration depicts the impression left after yesterday’s reading.
Today we have a take-off from the movie The Getaway. Whenever I see this movie, I wonder how it would read if the different uniforms were on the characters. Yesterday I read Jesmyn Ward’s words and knew I wanted them to accompany this reverse-silhouette and let you decide who is wearing what uniform. Enjoy!
