Boxmaster Chapter Headers

The client, that is, Lichtenberg's publishers, wanted me to do a series of logo-like, simple images which would go on the first page of each chapter. Here are four of them. From upper left: Shard in landscape, upper right: Alien and human hands holding box, Lower left, alien baby (she shows up in the story, not the child of the main character), lower right, mystical power of shard.

I'd like to work in this black-and-white illustration style again some day, but I don't want to do it right now.  

Each image is about 3 inches square, meant to be reduced to a much smaller size for the final text.
Ink on illustration board with computer-printed additions (the one on the lower right is all digital.) Fall 1994.

Love these, especially the first one (top left), it has so much power in such a small image.
