I was having a drink

I was having a drink with my gf in Williamsburg last Sunday when I was visiting a friend, and I saw a local magazine with an intriguing cover. Looking closer it looked darn much like a social network graph on that cover. Handdrawn. I checked the inside and all it said was “Mark Lombardi“. My friend came to the bar a bit later and I showed him, and he told me the Mark Lombardi story. Turns out the guy was doing lots of these diagrams in the 80s. Now they are considered art. He was doing a lot of them about politicians and arms dealers and such, so the CIA reportedly kept watch on him. Then one day, they found him hanging dead in his appartment in Williamsburg. Here’s some pictures: first one. Second one.
