Mystery Job

This is another of those illustrations that I've found in my flat files that I have no idea who I did it for. Judging from the material, style and presentation, I'm guessing that it was from sometime in '90 or '91. It has a vaguely 'evangelical' feel to it, which isn't surprising, as my early years were mired in that sort of work. This was at a time when I was still working on black coated scratchboard stock (which means, that every bit of white has to be scratched away from a black starting point). Later on, I went to white coated stock, and then added black ink on top of it, which cut down on a lot of time and effort, and also made planning a lot easier.
