A Chicago artist expertly lays out the True Detective plot

Having a little trouble following the storyline of True Detective? Don’t worry—there’s a website for that. Nigel Evan Dennis, a Chicago artist who goes by the name Electric Heat, has designed two beautiful graphic representations of the True Detective plot. He’s got one for each season, and they’re outfitted with character drawings, plot points, maps, location and item descriptions, and a countdown to the next episode. The site and artwork are sleek and modern, and categorize characters into good or bad and dead or alive. It also brings to light certain questions about the story and keeps a timeline of the search for answers. Who is driving that Cadillac? What is the Catalyst Group’s motivation? And exactly how corrupt is Vinci, California?
