With Chinua Achebe’s recent passing, I want to spread some love for Edel Rodriguez, who illustrated a whole series of reissues of Achebe’s work a couple years ago.
Have a look at the whole amazing series at Edel’s blog. Typical of his work, it’s gorgeous, raw, minimalist, to-the-bone. This guy isn’t just pushing pixels around. He’s also one of the most gracious creatives around, eager to share loads of photos and information about his process. Golden.
