Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, Illustrated

Chapter 8, Verse 11

Chapter 8, Verse 11

Over at Forbes, I’ve been posting my take on Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. The book was written in short verses, and each verse now has a corresponding diagram. In total, there are almost 300 illustrations.

It’s a project that was a lot of fun to draw and noodle on, and one I’m rather proud of. Have a look:

‘How To Be Interesting’ has a video!

How meta is that? From pixels to a book and then back again. Links to buy it are at the top left corner of my blog (for everyone reading this on other channels).

Also: you’ll be able to hear my high-pitched voice this weekend on NPR’s Splendid Table, talking about how to be interesting at a dinner party (spoiler alert: there may be mention of feral cats).
