Behind the cover: Fish Fight

Posted By on Wed, Apr 1, 2015 at 11:30 AM


It is always a tricky dance on how to illustrate a story on our cover.

Does it call for a photo? Does it call for an illustration? There is not steadfast rule.

It involves a lot of hashing out with the writer and boiling the idea down to one image. For this week's cover story about how the Spokane Tribe lost its fishing rights due to the Grand Coulee Dam, I felt an illustration showing a dead fish and a trickle of water would convey the scope of the story, or at least scratch the surface. 


Look for the new issue hitting the streets Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
