Illustrations by R. Kikuo Johnson / by urbanexus

This week I came across a bizarre story accompanied by wonderful illustrations by R. Kikuo Johnson. The story was "How to Hide $400 Million", by Nicholas Confessore. It appeared in the New York Times Magazine with a dateline of November 30, 2016. 

The illustration that grabbed my attention appeared right below the headline and byline

This image captured the essence of the article--a couple that had irreconcilable differences. And the husband was willing to take extreme measures to prevent his wife from securing a reasonable settlement.

Via a quick Google search, I learned that Ms. Johnson also was the illustrator for the cover of the New Yorker Magazine of October 10, 2016. The "Cover Story" piece for that edition offers a brief perspective on this obviously talented artist. And here is an image of that cover.
