‘Going for Broke’ Illustrations

‘Going for Broke’ was Mark’s first foray into the e-book world. A humorous tale of  an accidental ‘Big Year’, back in 1984 when pagers, mobile phones, e-bird (the internet, even) and, for Mark, reliable personal transport were all a distant dream. For this book, my illustrations were mainly cartoon-driven, although there were a few bird vignettes and, even more fun, some of Mark’s own inimitable notebook artwork. This e-bbok is available from Smashwords, Kobo, Barnes and Noble and iBooks.
