New Yorker Illustration: “Anthracite Fields”


Here’s an illustration that I did for the “Classical Music” section of the New Yorker. More specifically it’s about “Anthracite Fields”, which is an orchestra that performs while projecting a video about a generation of miners in Pennsylvania.

It’s always a treat to be in the New Yorker and this one was especially fun because I approached it in a way that I do for my on location work (loose, a bit more texture, etc.).

Thank you.

  1. Interesting juxtaposition of characters and environments. This illustration stands on its own even without an explanation. Lovely!

    Thanks. The contrast of the miners and orchestra was fun to play with.
