Illustrating the Cosmopolitan Magazine Horoscope page throughout 1990 was one of my favourite illustration projects of my early career. I’d already worked on various book covers and some magazine imagery but to work on a set of twelve images was exciting!
In those days I worked almost exclusively in pastels and liked to work large, so each image was 20 x 26 inches / 56 x 66cm
I went on to illustrate the tweleve images twice more: for Aura Soma Products in 1999 and again for myself in 2012:
This third set of twelve are in a private collection in Northern Ireland in the possession of the owners of Cancer and Virgo.
