Jacob was commissioned to illustrate the Sunday Book Review for novelist Ali Smith’s ongoing four part “Quartet” novel series. It focuses in particular on her most recent “Spring” novel. Jacob created this illustration around the novels themes of the ever changing timeless and the eternal present, our current political reality, the necessity of play, and the power of humans to make change set to the tune of the relationships of the main characters, two troubled adults and one seemingly magical young girl.
Two versions, horizontal and vertical, were created for both online and print.
