The Threads of Time
This is an assemblage via Photoshop of a number of drawings I used to illustrate and embellish a story by science fiction writer C.J. Cherryh. The story and its illustrations were published in the program book for DarkoverCon 1981, when Cherryh was its author guest of honor. The piece, titled "The Threads of Time," was, as I dimly remember, a time-travel detective tale, where a sleuth must track a villain who can shift through centuries or even millennia.
Something has been shifting this millennium and most of us will be glad to crawl away from 2016 but some of what 2016 brought us will be with us for quite some time. I'll just keep making art and hoping that at least someone is looking at it.
Originals are black ink on illustration board, fall 1981. Clicquot for a larger view.
