the FIRST ILLO I EVER HAD IN TIME MAG

i kept visiting, calling, and mailing Ken Smith–AD at TIME—who worked on the NOTEBOOK section there at the mag…one day i sent him a fax (probably a fax) and asked, or begged, “if you ever do a story on mark mcgwire—as a cardinal fan, i would LOVE to work on it!”

he called that afternoon.

he called about every 6 or 8 weeks for several years….really fun stuff. then he retired, new AD, who eschews illustration. end of era.

watercolor, colored pencil, airbrush. Fedex.
