Harper's Magazine sent me a fascinating article about concealed weapons to illustrate. (It's a great piece, dispelling with data any assumptions you might have had about the issue.)
Here's my study for the opener ( of 4 illustrations), a beauty shot of a .38 but lit in such a way that it is veiled. Concealed. I'll find out tomorrow what Harper's thinks.
I should add that the art director at Harper's is one of those very rare art directors who will trash a concept, give a suggestion, and the end result is a great improvement. So I'm open..

I would love to have a print of your sketch from the Feb 2010 issue of Southern Living...the Smitten With Mississippi article. Is that possible?

I have seen your work for ages and recently was given a copy of "The Cuckoo's Haiku" and I finally decided to google you to see if you had a web page--glad I did--great blog. I recognized your style in several places, and I'm always attracted to it.
