Mysterious Character Studies

Mary Higgins Clark Mystery Magazine

This month saw the first digital assignments from Mary Higgins Clark Mystery Magazine (Family Circle). This publication was geared towards a female mystery fan readership, full size and on glossy paper, unlike the work I was doing for Alfred Hitchcock. I was to provide a series of four ‘character studies’ of well known recurring literary subjects from famous authors. They wanted me to not so much focus on their ‘face’, as on the settings, the props and the flavor of the world the character inhabit. I would do three or four sets of these studies before the magazine eventually folded a couple years later.
