Celebrating 200 Years of Austen Power
It's been 200 years since Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice was published and her novels are still as relevant as ever. The themes of Austen's novels have proved enduring, inspiring dozens of films, zombie novels, and biographies. The Wall Street Journal's Arena Magazine wanted to pay homage to the author and asked Sarah J. Coleman to be a part of it.
Commissioned by Manny Velez at WSJ, "Austen Power" is a detailed illustration depicting the large body of work Austen has inspired. Sarah made sure to include zombies, Bollywood dancers, mugs, plates, and of course, lady Austen herself.>
