Grateful for Molly Quinn

This letter is submitted in appreciation of the work of The Spokesman-Review’s staff illustrator Molly Quinn. Her illustrations are one of the best regular features of the paper. It’s been enjoyable and interesting to notice over the years how her approach to illustrating different kinds of ideas and themes changes depending on the content of a story. She is a master of line, from bold, spontaneous and colorful strokes to fine, precise, controlled rendering in any media. Her work enhances the stories it accompanies. I especially liked her monster vignettes adorning the mastheads of the Halloween edition of this year’s paper.

While her cartoons always stand out to me, her maps, diagrams and portraits are also masterful. It’s been great to see more of her work in recent issues. Hopefully, Molly Quinn’s work will continue to appear for years to come. In these days of so much lousy news dominated by the distorted words and actions of creeps and crooks and the people who love them, it’s nice to have something pleasing and improving to look forward to in the pages of The Spokesman-Review.
