Wanted to do something different, so I took inspiration from a book my school had me read this summer; THE THINGS THEY CARRIED by Tim O'Brien

I wanted to do something interesting with O'Brien's concept of "Story-truth" that he adresses in the novel, basically stating that he makes certain aspects of his story up so that the reader understands the FEELING of the moment more than what ACTUALLY HAPPENED...

So This is an illustration of Tim O'Brien in Nam, reading his book to his squad, but they all are enveloped/fading in the book's mist because you can't be sure which of his characters he had made up and which were actually people...

Anyways, Hope you enjoy! Please criticize, I could use the help!

Thanks,
Rico
