Hey! I'm a luminary! I'm planning to do signings this summer, starting with Printers Row in Chicago. New page of Odd Jobs this weekend. See you then. Check back here later this month for more information.
Otherwise, aside from local elections and a bunch of other minor stuff, the big thing I was working on concerned one of the most notorious crimes ever committed in Illinois: The Brown's Chicken Murders in 1993, where seven people were found murdered one night in a fast-food restaurant. It took more than ten years for a break in the case to develop, and I've been with the Daily Herald the whole time. For trial of one of the suspects, I created this multimedia presentation along with editors, reporters and videographers. It includes an 3D animated description of the crime scene, a timeline stretching back to the night of the crime more than 14 years ago, a collection of videos looking at the victims, suspects and other people brought together by the crime, and finally a look at the people at the trial.
