PMurphy v. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
- Who are you and what do you do?
PMurphy. I live in Connecticut and currently make a living by taking on various art-related tasks for the advertising department of a New England-based furniture store. If I’m not working there, I am fine tuning my cartooning techniques, illustration skills, making music, or sitting around thinking about these things. Yay!
- Why did you pick the book you chose?
The book I chose is One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest. I read this book in high school and it was the only one that didn’t turn me off to reading at that time. When Meg asked me to be a part of this project, that stood out in my mind. I had kept my copy from high school and read it again. There are aspects of this book that fascinate me on the social, historic level and even on a personal level. I hope that the pictures I create will inspire others read it as well!
PMurphy is one of my favorite people on the planet, and his many explorations into art, music, animation and comics continually inspire! So I am really excited to see him stretch his wings and tackle such a book. His first illustration for the blog debuts February 19, but you can peek at his portfolio in the meantime.
Next up a lovely addition from Israel Sanchez!
