10 May 1997
The illustration above was a 'same day' assignment from Newsday for an article entitled 'Is Chess a Sport?'.
The illustration below was another fiction piece for Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, about a murder that takes place in an abandoned cliff dwelling.
The illustration above was for Cricket magazine. Interestingly, the illustration was picked up as an example for an article entitled "Pee Wee Reads" for the May/June '98 issue of "Print" magazine. I found a copy of the magazine that it appeared in, and the scans above and below were taken from the printed edition. I've included a scan of the page from 'Print' below that.
While looking through the invoices for this month, I came across a book cover that I had completely forgotten about. The artwork was never returned, but I did manage to find an image of the printed book cover while researching my bibliography. This one was for Eerdman's Publishing, and was the first assignment I had gotten from them in 3 years, and would be the last I would hear from them.
Also, according to my invoices, I had a new client this month, although I dont' remember the job. Bostonia Magazine.
