Not much to say about this piece cause all the details are lost in the misty corridors of my memory. Got a call one day when I was still in NYC from a company developing roll playing games, ala D+D. They wanted me to do the illustrations/character designs for the project. It was to have a crime noir, 1930's setting. This all sounded good and I drew up this rough, following a detailed description of the scene. Sent them a xerox (yes, that long ago.) They loved it. Raved about it. And I never heard another word from them or about the project. So it goes.
