Portrait of William Least Heat-Moon
Brian Williamson | Vox Magazine
Painted a portrait of William Least Heat-Moon, the reclusive author of “Blue Highways”.
Because the author is notoriously secretive, this magazine profile used interviews of friends, colleagues and former students to tell his story.
We only had a handful of poorly shot snapshots of Heat-Moon, so I decided to paint his portrait.
I also created a series of pencil sketches of his local hangouts for spot illustrations throughout the article.
