This Challenge is for me: Create a bunch of editorial illustrations that COULD accompany articles in the New Yorker magazine. Have fun!

This illustration goes with an article by Thomas Mallon, published in the New Yorker Magazine issue Dec. 12/2022. The article is a collection of diary entries from the years 1985-88. It describes the author’s feelings and anxieties living as a gay person in New York City in the midst of the AIDS pandemic while at the same time experiencing his first significant successes as a writer.
