    'Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage' by Haruki Murakami

    Victo Ngai

    Being a long time Murakami fans, I was super excited when AD Kim from Boston Globe asked me to create the art for the “Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage” book review. 

    In “Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage,” Haruki Murakami’s latest novel, he allows his hero to eavesdrop on one of life’s darkest possible tunes: the inner hum, the secret desire, for death. As the book opens, the “colorless” Tsukuru Tasaki has fallen into a terrible depression. Tsukuru’s four closest friends, who are nicknamed by colors, abruptly and unequivocally cut him off. All he can think about is dying. Tsukuru escapes the void, just barely, and emerges a new person, the person we follow through the rest of this book. Murakami elegantly describes how emotional trauma can lead us to disassociate. Read the book review here.

    Big thanks to AD Kim Vu. This is actually my first time working with the Boston Globe, what a great way to start!

    I couldn’t find a place in NYC that does large-format scanning for any reasonable amount of money, so I scanned the Orrery drawing myself in like 15 parts. It took a long time.

    Here are some more process images: cleaning up linework, blocking everything out in flat colors, and marking some layers of distance to work with later. More nitty-gritty coloring details soon.
