I got my first business stamp - an address block with my art. Of course, I proceeded to use a whole sketchbook page testing it. :P
This was stationery for a couple of years.
This one lasted even longer. Look! Dots!!
And more dots! This was part of a series of stationery - this was back when I had a monthly stationery program (package of stationery in the mail every month!), and each package came with a little short story about the myth behind the artwork. It was too time-consuming to maintain at the time, but I'm considering more programs like this...
More of that series.
Now, technically this isn't paid work, but it was small press, and I did get advertisement space in the 'zine I did this for. So, close enough.
This was my first paid commission. I did two pages of sketches, sent xeroxes by snail mail, and forked over a final copy in ink. I think that I charged a whopping $18 for the whole thing, and felt like I was overcharging.
Second pages of sketches. I don't seem to have a copy of the final, anymore.
She was happy enough to commission custom stationery. :) I have no idea what I charged for that.
Next time, stuff I did Just For Me. And I think that will finish off 1994.
