When I was freelancing from Utah, advertizing was part of what I had to do to rustle up work. I created this image to use as a promo card and mailed it around to potential clients. I also sent this to some publishers in New York in the hopes of getting some illustration work.
During the Golden Age of Illustration, black and white illustrations were used to illustrate a lot of the novels of that era. I thought this image evoked some of the romance and drama of that by-gone era. Well, suffice it to say, I didn't get any work from New York .... now I know why we don't see this type of imagedry, plain and simple they don't want it.
