Another mini dragon miniature

I drew countless illustrations for Katharine's mother's fan magazines, over the 1980s. Mom commissioned me to do a portrait nametag miniature for her daughter, and the girl herself specified how I was to portray her. She's in medieval Norse garb, holding a Pernese "fire lizard" mini-dragon. I wonder where she is now. So many of these portraitees are lost to the dust of time.

Nametag miniature is The Usual Specifications, February 1989. At that point I was newly established in the Metro Washington DC area, working as an architectural illustrator for a firm that produced drawings for real estate ads.
