NYTBR: Carry The One

Mar 24th, 2012

I’m in the NYT Book Review this weekend. This illustration accompanies a review for a novel called Carry The One. From Amazon:

Carry the One begins in the hours following Carmen’s wedding reception, when a car filled with stoned, drunk, and sleepy guests accidentally hits and kills a girl on a dark country road. For the next twenty-five years, those involved, including Carmen and her brother and sister, craft their lives in response to this single tragic moment.

Here is a job from this weekend’s upcoming New York Times Magazine about the economics of babysitters and nannies.

There was something refreshing about drawing the street clothing. I started taking note of how people ACTUALLY dress… they way they really wear their clothing and not just echoing my own tastes and preferences. See if you can spot the toning shoes.

I can’t say I envy these elite nannies, who make $200K (plus living expenses) per year. It reminds me of my summer grooming show jumpers as a teenager (the children being 1000lb horses). I just don’t take direction well from the superrich, I guess.
