Textbook Cover

Another recently unearthed textbook cover that I did for MacMillan around 1990-91. I managed to find this one on eBay and purchased a copy for my library (from which the photo above is taken – writing this in 2018). An insane amount of detail in this picture, to try and pull off with pastels, one of the reasons I stopped working in this medium. Customers kept wanting more and more going on in the picture, when the medium seemed to work better with less and less complicated subject matter.
