Thomas Pynchon’s AGAINST THE DAY is a book that is almost impossible to finish. In many ways, it defeats the point of finishing it. It’s more than a thousand pages long, and each individual scene is pretty much the size of a novella. It’s a novel that you can dip into like an encyclopedia. It’s set between 1893 and World War I, and it came out in 2006. It’s in no way current.

At the time I had this painting oriented style where everything was drawn to and for the color. I would in occasion leave anatomically incorrect sketches for the painting stage and I'd often fix things late in the stage.

Without having a familiar silhouette or more than two colors (one being black) it's amazing how many characters are still easily recognizable. Anka has created some really exceptional work mixing these 2 worlds together. Some of the lesser known characters might be harder to label so I've included their names below each art piece.
