Special Halloween re-illustration of "Everyday There is So Much About Elephants"

Justin K.H Chen,  an artist in New York,  is working with  Smokelong Quarterly's Senor Editor, Tara Laskowski on an interesting illustration project. 

Here's what he wrote to Tara

 My goal was to create a print edition of a specially curated collection of fiction, from the 10 years archives of Smokelong Quarterly. This print edition still retains the components of a typical publication, but will not contain the actual writing. Instead each story will be expressed through a sequences of abstract images.

Here's what Justin created for my story, Everyday There is So Much About Elephants. The original illustration for the story was by Sue Miller, which appeared in March 2011, when the story originally did.

Some of Justin's work and the original Smokelong Stories appear today in their special Halloween Edition but can be viewed here.
