„gone to water“ is a short story by tim gautreaux. it tells the story of an old man with dementia, his grandson and their direct contact with an oilspill in louisiana.

the 5 illustrations are mirroring the overall tone of the story. they picture key scenes in the tale and the progress of the illness. the black parts represent the present and the blue parts the old mans past. they are slowly getting the upper hand, just like the visions from the past do for the main character and the water did in the louisiana landscape.
