His hatred of his country and its people was so profound, it made a mockery of his civil status. The neighbourhood park became a desolate spread of mud and water, lit up at night by rain-streaked street lamps. Discovering an organized rebellion within a rebellion was interesting on its own.

Towards the end of our interview, Jones reaches out to grasp his hand, giving it a good squeeze. I didn't think I'd have a lot of time to sketch, so I took a minimum of supplies, but it turned out to be all I needed.

Passing it one evening during a downpour, I recalled how, in the intense heat of the previous summer, I had stretched out on the ground and let my bare feet slip out of my shoes to caress the grass, and how this direct contact with the earth had brought with it a sense of freedom and expansiveness, summer breaking down the usual boundaries between indoors and out and allowing me to feel as much at home in the world as in my own bedroom.
