|Back in the day. There used to be an abundance
of illustration work available. Newspapers were a major source of info.
Retailers would buy full page ads and cram as many products as they could
into them. The crude printing methods used made it tough to use photography.
Line art was the preferred media. Ollie Fretter, Highland Appliance, Adray,
to name a few, were always looking for freelance illustrators. The pen
and ink illustrations here sold for about $40 to $60 dollars in the seventies.
Toning was added with stippling or 65 line rub on screening.
