Gary Alphonso began his career as a scratchboard illustrator in the 1980s. That is where Gary learned the precision of line and shadow evident in his work today. As Gary evolved his technique, he began creating 'scratchboard' art in Adobe Illustrator, in both black and white and full color.
These cover illustrations for Harlequin's Worldwide Mystery Series featuring Vicki Delany's Constable Molly Smith showcases Gary's ability to create drama through perspective and lighting in a retro poster art style. His technique, perfected over many years, creates a stunning outcome.
The latest in the series, Negative Image will be in stores March 2016.
