A spec sketch of Puck and Lysander for "A Midsummer Night's Dream". "Spec" work is where an editor or art director asks you to do some sketching, even finished art, prior to awarding you the contract so they can see how you'll handle the material they wanted illustrated. I was still fairly new to the publishing business when I was asked to do this sketch and another by an editor. I liked this one. They didn't. I didn't get the job. Phooey. Pencil, 1988.
