Marching Into Spring

AHMM, Highlights, Red thread

A few illustration projects from this week. The one above was another fiction assignment from Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine. This was my first national client way back in 1989 (I can still remember that first image, one of my first attempts at scratchboard, of an ice fishing shanty in the middle of a frozen lake), and I’ve been working for them pretty steadily for the past 20 years, through several personnel changes.
Below is a cover illustration for a Jewish magazine out of the Detroit area. Did this one in a bit more of a painterly style.

And then, wrapping up the week, I also had a series of small ‘umpire’ spots for Highlights magazine.

Kind of slowing down here at the end of March, and I’ll probably take advantage of the lull by doing a bit more advertising and self promotion.
