STORIES

wsj_wool_v4This appears along with the story about Hugh Howey‘s self-published novel WOOL in today’s edition of The Wall Street Journal. However, it only appears in the iPad App version. To see it, launch the app, tap on SECTIONS and then on ARENA. Voila!

My initial plan was to render a digital composite using a pre-photographed stack of books. However, after the above sketch was approved, I decided that I would feel better about myself if I crafted and altered everything by hand. The scorched house and trees were from cut/creased/folded/glued from the top book’s cover cloth. A wood chisel started the cave-carving process. A Dremel – fitted with a small burr attachment – shaped and smoothed the rudimentary dwelling of the underground shelter—many ‘stories’ below.
