I can't recall if I found a magazine photograph of someone in overalls to use as reference for this drawing, or took a photo of myself (I had overalls just like this at that time) or just drew it from my head -- I suspect it was one of the first two options. But this is one of my favorite cover drawings that I did for "Hampshire Life" back in the late 1970's/early 1980's.
Earlier this year I decided that I would finally start hanging some more of my artwork up on the walls of our house, and this was one of the pieces that I chose. There is something about the line work that I really like. And it is also unusual (at least for me) in the use of the black border tape as a design element -- that's something I rarely did. -- PL
