A Blast from the Past

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.
