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. I also had another book cover illustration for Baker Book House, although I don’t remember much about it. (this link at Amazon might be the same book, but I’m not certain).
