Ides of April


Been busy with a few book projects, and I’m currently in the ‘changeover’ period between the two. Just finished up with 50 spot illustrations for an upcoming book (I’ll post samples later this week), and starting on 80 illustrations for another (which will be complete sometime next month). In the meantime, here’s a ‘short turnaround’ magazine illustration for the American Bar Association.

Book Covers


Been working on a series of 50 spot illustrations for an upcoming book, which I hope to share with you soon (next week, probably), and in the meantime, I finished up a few more classic reprint book covers for Dover this week. Above is the art for ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea’, and below is the art for ‘A Christmas Carol’.

Sample Car



There may be the possibility of another coloring book on the horizon, and I did a ‘sample drawing’ of one in my usual scratchboard style this week. Here’s my wife’s first car, a Ford Galaxie 500.

Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine




Did another fiction illustration for Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine this week. Been working for this magazine since 1989, and never tire of the variety and the challenges of the assignments. Also, as this is one of the few remaining ‘pulp digests’ out there still in print, I enjoy the idea that I am linked in some way to those forgotten illustrators of yesteryear who I so admire.

Each time I post a new illustration, I renew my plea for old back issues. I am missing copies of issues where my work has appeared from the years 1989-2000. If you happen to have a pile of old musty Hitchcocks in your attic, get in touch with me, I’d love to take some of them off your hands.
