Not your average dinner conversation...

I finished this illustration for Grant Staublin at Boston Globe Magazine a few weeks ago. The issue ran yesterday, in the Sunday paper. War correspondent Anna Badkhen writes about a meal she shared with an Iraqi woman, during which they recalled some of their experiences with war, in graphic detail.

Although the act of retelling incidents of death and injury during dinner seems strange to most of us, she explains that they saw it as a way of realizing how lucky they are to have survived. Here's the article. Thanks, Grant!
