Earlier this summer I read Isak Dinesen’s Out of Africa. The style of the writing was nice, but I don’t really understand why this is considered a classic. Dinesen has a glossy admiration of Kikuyu and Ugandan people without really bothering to understand them, and the whole thing seems a little too nostalgic for the days of real heavy European colonialism. Anyways, it still inspired me to draw a cover for the book. I like how the clouds came out on this one.
