Some years ago—before digital art was on the horizon—I was commissioned by Byron Preiss Visual Publications to do some of the interior illustrations for a book of short stories (hard boiled stuff, as you may guess) named “Chandler”. This was one of them—I’ll post more. It’s interesting looking at some of these where I had to repeat elements: what is so easily done now using Photoshop, was then done more laboriously using photocopier, X-Acto knife, and glue stick. It was good training though, in being exact, and being patient. But computers are better for that stuff, undeniably.
