Easter Island


Another early assignment from Cricket magazine was this story about the heads on Easter Island. This was a fun one, as I’ve long been fascinated by these statues, and hope to visit this island one day. I seem to remember that this was also in 2 color, like a lot of these early projects, and I remember having to cut some ‘red rubylith’ overlays to indicate the 2nd color. Only one of the three illustrations has survived my frequent purges, and the other two illustrations (below) were scanned from an anthology book that the story was reprinted in that was published sometime the following year.
