Pynchon’s Hippy Noir

This was drawn for the NY Times Book Review about Thomas Pynchon’s new novel, “Inherent Vice.” It’s a hippie era twist of a detective novel set in LA in the early 70's. His private eye, Doc Sportello, unravels a crime without missing any opportunity to smoke dope and have long trippy conversations about the universe.

I generally like to sketch in brush and ink, and occasionally if one of those sketches works out, it makes it to the final art, and found it kind of funny drawing of a hand holding a doobie for the esteemed pages of the Grey Lady.
