All a Very Long Time Ago, but might as well put some of it out in public rather than leave it stuck in my portfolio. You can see how long ago it was from some of the clothing and detail.
And there really was a time when computers were this tiny:
(This one was for Camden Council, illustrating “grants for workers’ co-ops”. My editor tried to persuade me to make the computer user a woman – then as now, programming was blokey and they wanted to actively counteract stereotypes. But if I’d done that, then she’d have just looked like a secretary. Tricky business, this stereotype-defying).
and look at these two are – he’s reading an actual, physical newspaper, she’s reading a book, not an e-book – in public. How often do you see that now?
