15 April 1997
Of all the invoices for the month of April of '97, I only ran across one that rung a bell with a surviving illustration in the archive. This portrait of Netanyahu was a 'same day' illustration for Newsday. I was also surprised to see that I had done some 'pre-computer' work for Mary Higgins Clark Mystery Magazine (this was actually the second assignment for this client). I had previously assumed that I hadn't gotten assignments from that client until after I had switched over to computer illustration. The titles didn't sound familiar, and I don't even remember what they looked like. I don't think the artwork was ever returned, but I could be mistaken. I did a lot of purging of the flat files from time to time to clear up the clutter, only hanging on to art that appealed to me, or for nostalgia's sake.
