Illuminated Tweets of Elon Musk is an in-progress coloring book of Elon’s tweets drawn in the spirit of gonzo journalism, editorial illustration and improvisation. My hand is a tiny dancer that interpretively draws Elon’s tweets, creating coloring pages for cultural change and also just because it’s fun. You can support the project on Patreon HERE as well as download the high resolution pages before they’re printed in the book.
