Clandestine


Clandestine (Epsilon 11)
Pencils: Rob Hansen; Inks and digital colour: Harry Bell
[Used with Rob's permission]

Back in the 1980s, my old friend Rob Hansen and I collaborated on some fanzine covers. This one, dated 1982, was for Rob's own fanzine, Epsilon, and I did the inking over his pencils. The subject seemed to suit this week's Illustration Friday subject, Clandestine, so this time round I added some digital colour.

That's a Gestetner duplicator, the device we old farts used to produce fanzines on back in the paleozoic.

Very handsome - Nice to be able to look back on past work with satisfaction (not to mention being able to locate it).

Thanks for your compliment, Susan -- it helps to be something of a packrat, I find ;)
