Illustration Throwback Thursday #22

April 7th, 2016 | Posted in Illustration Throwback Thursday

zahiI used to do fairly regular work for National Geographic Kids magazine (later National Geographic World), mainly spot illustrations but occasionally half or full pages as well. They were an interesting client to work for because they were real sticklers for historical and scientific accuracy when it came to the artwork. I would be given very specific references for things like the type of clothes or accessories someone from a certain place or time would be wearing. I’m not sure when I stopped getting calls from them but I have not done anything for National Geographic World for a few years now.

This 2004 piece was for an article on archaeologist and History Channel TV show star Dr. Zahi Hawass.
