This is some newly discovered art for a back cover illustration that I did for Baker Book House around this time (‘The Dual Earner Marriage’). I managed to find the book on eBay (writing this entry in 2018), and this photo is from the book jacket.
The above ‘same day’ illustration was another one for Newsday. ‘Same day’ assignments at this time usually involved making a trip to the copy shop so I could enlarge the illustration as big as possible, and then faxing the enlarged version to the client to use as an ‘original’. At least in this way, I was able to hang on to a lot of the original artwork, which otherwise I probably wouldn’t see again.
Also, while researching the month of November, I came across another book assignment for St Mary’s Press. I don’t remember it much, and no artwork has survived that I’m aware of. I think I found the link for the book on Amazon, which still has a few used copies for sale. According to the invoice it looks like I provided about 8-10 illustrations for this one.
