From the dusty old portfolio....

I found this from circa 1988 - 90.

Rotring art pen & watercolor on bainbridge board.

It was spec art to illustrate a series of "tween" books about a group of girls who were tired of being nerds in their school's social scene. They decided to create their own exclusive club.

There's nothing special about the art itself but it's a fond memory. It was requested from the Editor I had been working with while illustrating educational activity books. She liked my work and wanted to give me opportunities for different projects the publishing company had in the pipeline.

Although I didn't get the job. It was nice to be considered for. I took it as a "pat on the back" for the work I had been doing.
