Same Page as Mark Ryden
Communication Arts Illustration Annual 1996
Here I am on the same page as Mark Ryden in 1996 (his painting is at the top of the page). My painting is called, "The Boy from Togo". It's a fairly large oil on linen. I always entered my fine art into the Communication Arts Illustration annuals - in the unpublished category. I also used my fine art on postcard samples to mail out to art directors. This image got me so many jobs!! I think it was the busiest time for me in my entire illustration career and I had to actually turn some jobs away.
