In 1997 I illustrated The Three Musketeers for William Morrow.  This was part of their Books of Wonder series.  Altogether I did sixteen paintings for the book.  A commission like this was something new for me.  Most of the work I had been doing was bookcovers -- one assignment, one deadline.  Illustrating a book was another matter and required special discipline.  I learned a great deal from the work and I applied that to my next assignment from William Morrow*, illustrating The War of the Worlds.
* William Morrow was bought by Harper Collins, so that book came out with their imprint.
