Fiction illustration for Me Magazine 1989. This is one of many lifestyle magazine illustrations I painted for the likes of Tv Quick , Bella , Woman's Own and Take A Break to name a few. I was still trying to master illustrating fiction to a tight deadline - usually about a week. Bear in mind I had a day job in an illustration agency as a rep so all my art was done late into the night with usually little reference ( which probably shows). That said publishers liked something I was doing as I was commissioned many times in the late 1980s. It's sad to see this area of work for the illustrator hardly exists anymore.I'm glad I was there at the tail end.
