Op Ed Ill...in color

A few weeks ago, we got an assignment to do a cover piece--that meant color and a portrait. From four article options, I chose the one on Stephen King. It was a book review, but most of the article was on King and his literary merits.

He says at one point that he was afraid of being brought into the upper-echelon literary fold because people would wonder "who let the barbarian in the palace." I based by illustration on his feeling of being judged by the greats (pictured below are Shakespeare, Bronte, Balzac, and Dickens). I'm thinking about going back in and including their names (duh). Originally, I didn't want the text to become what people focused on.
