One of the consequences of putting this blog together to showcase my work, is finding some old pieces of art that I had forgotten about.
The first is an illustration for the cover of a fashion supplement for the Auckland Star, back when newspapers were big. I got a job doing the illustrations for the supplement when I was a student a million years ago, so it was done in pen and ink. Personal computers and Adobe software were still in the future.
The other piece I found was a tryout of the cover of “The Wind Woman”. In the end I went with watercolour instead of coloured pencil.
