Slam Dunk Sabotage. Did you ever do the art for Nancy Drew or other juvenile series? Other artists from my agency did manage to paint some of her books. Lucky sods. Painting the Hardy Boys books for so long two solid years got me typecast as a children's illustrator. It wasn't that welcome, because in general children's books sell in less quantities than - for instance - romantic novels which I was trying to break into when the Hardy Boys came along , and consequently pay less.

The blond Hardy Boy was already becoming hard to arrange photo sessions with. My stepfather's there again. The roof was my neighbour's as viewed from our kitchen window!
One of Kenny's. One of his later ones, a great painting. It went down so well that it was used in our agency's catalogue.

One of mine, from early My agent wanted a change of style For this batch we only had the dark Hardy boy to work with, meaning that no. One of mine, from mid , and one of my last ones. I had a real loss of confidence around this time, caused by the increasing difficulties of putting the pictures together. This painting had to be virtually redone. The boys had grown so much that by now they looked useless, and of course they also felt too old to be hamming it up for the cameras..
I had to use old reference material. To get my confidence back I went for a huge, spectacular painting. Chet is played by me Painted in early , not one of my favourites! From the 'psychedelic' batch. I'm the bad guy in the background.
