One of my all time favorite films is Magnolia. And, recently, I was inspired to start a new editorial illustration series, one that is more experimental and symbolic – less storybook literal – based on the characters of the film. I have started with Stanley Spector, the wunderkind. He is, in a way, all of us, trying to fit in, trying to please. And the way the adults around him use and abuse him I found deeply troubling and infuriating.
Keep on, little guy! You can do it!
