The Illustrated Press is an experiment in journalism from Chicago, Ill—the product of narrative non-fiction stories told through first-hand reportage and finely tuned sequential art:

Darryl Holliday (reporter) has written for a handful of publications including the Chicago Sun-Times, DNAinfo Chicago, The Progressive magazine and Gapers Block. He currently works as a crime reporter and freelance journalist in Chicago.

E. N. Rodriguez (illustrator) is a graphic designer for The Columbia Chronicle and has directed the art in various city publications, including R_Wurd, a youth-journalism magazine based out of Columbia College Chicago. Erik has been drawing, literally, longer than he can remember. #LongTermMemoryLoss
