Night Raven Art by Alan Davis

Alan Davis drew art for a Night Raven text story, which he got paid very little money for, he explains below how much and why he did it, but first here's a few pages taken from his website...

Alan Davis - 'After a very brief appearance as a 
comic strip Nightraven became a 
text story  filler. Paul Neary 
supplied a few really nice 
illustrations in a pulpish style for 
the first story (and set the standard 
that I attempted to imitate-- very 
poorly) but the money was 
laughable less than $10 an 
illustration so the assignment fell to 
me. The low rate was justified by a 
claim that the illustrations would 
appear as very small column illos, 
only slightly larger than the 
thumbnails on these pages BUT 
many saw print as splash pages or 
across spreads.

I was still working in a regular job 
when I drew these images and most 
were drawn during lunch breaks in 
the canteen.'
