Throwback Thursday – Barnes & Noble Cover from 2007

Barnes & Noble

I missed posting a ‘Throwback Thursday’ last week, as I was in Chicago getting ready to celebrate my son’s wedding.

This week we are taking the ‘way back machine’ to a decade ago around 2007 when I had a pair of assignments for Barnes and Noble to illustrate the covers of a pair of┬áreprint story collections. The first one was a book of ‘Pirate’ stories, and the second one was a book of ‘Adventure’ stories (pictured above). I don’t often work in the ‘painting style’, but this was probably the one piece in that style that I was most pleased with. This is a larger, more detailed version than I’d posted in the original blog entry.
