Fyodor Dostoyevsky: The Idiot

When I first started keeping a sketchbook in 2010, I made a series of drawings based on photographs of some of the millions of victims of Stalin’s gulags. I found this one in my archives and have mocked it up as a cover for Dostoyevsky’s The Idiot. To be honest, I could have used it for almost any of Dostoyevsky’s novels, but I picked The Idiot simply because I was listening to Iggy Pop’s album of the same name at the time.
