Travelling Sprinkler

colour, editorial, illustration, process
New piece for the Financial Times Book review section. Illustrating Nicholson Baker’s new publication Travelling Sprinklers, it tells the story of a failing poet called Chowder. Disappointed by middle-aged life he invests his attention to a travelling sprinkler he has grown emotionally attachment to after a break up with his girlfriend.
The article emphasised the mundanity of Chowder’s life and Baker’s writing style reflecting that. I tried to use colours that echoed this feeling, a quieter and more subtle palette than my usual choice.
