Blast from the Past #148: "A World Beyond"

I apologize for the poor quality of this mage -- I photographed it from a smallish reproduction in an advertisement printed on newsprint. I have not yet run across the original artwork, though it is possible it's in my files somewhere.

This is from one of two times that my artwork was used to promote a small science fiction event held in 1980 at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, MA. At one of these shows, I got to meet Joan Vinge, one of my favorite science fiction authors.

In addition to being used in advertisements and posters for the event, this image was also printed on t-shirts. I think I may still have one of them (a little worse for the wear). -- PL

I really love when you post things like this for us to view. I've admired your work and the story of how you and Kevin achieved such success, ever since I was a kid.

I recently designed a poster and shirt for a local event being held in Sarasota, FL. Seeing things like this from early in your career always give me hope that my career is on the right path to one day be successful like yours.

Anyways in short thanks for continuing to post these pieces, I don't always reply but I should take the opportunity to tell you that I check your blog every day, and it has been very inspiring to me. I've recently been going through some rough times and in some way your blog has been helping me through them, so thank you for sharing!
