The illustration was originally done in Illustrator as a companion to a short story of the same name. The short story is included in my multi-media book Dangerous Mind. It was done early in my journey into digital illustration.
This image was the first that made me realize how effectively I could combine traditional and electronic media. The complete image control provided by the computer has eliminated a life long problem, that 9/10ths of the way through the illustration, I might make a mistake that could not be corrected. The book page in the illustration is a reduced image of the illustration and copy page from the book. With a magnifying glass you can read the print on the book page.
