16 Questions with Chris Emile

For the graceless lot that is–in our loose estimation–95% of the population, dance seems a thing as utterly confounding as flight, say, or ordering coffee in Latin. The mind does not comprehend, the body does not cooperate. It represents, by any measure, utter impossibility to most. When in the...

The Interrogator with Danielle Chenette

Artist and illustrator Danielle Chenette has described her work as a process of removal and reinvention. There are hints, sometimes, in her illustrations, which appear often in the New York Times Book Review and others, of the boxy figurativism of Schoolhouse Rock, the just-off-kilter palette of Dr. Seuss, various Disney...
