His first piece of art for us was "Dangerous Assignment." We were so impressed!! All I did was send him one of the radio shows and he created the masterpiece.

Valerie Hughes, the AIC Buyer, loved Captain Midnight. The story was that we actually needed two covers: one for Captain Midnight and one for Hop Harrigan. When we got Dave's artwork (which was drawn only for Captain Midnight), I realized that we could use his art to produce both covers. (You have to understand, we worked on a mighty tight budget!) I'm not sure that he was all that pleased about that at the time (although I called and told him before I moved forward with my "plan"), but the covers turned out wonderfully.

My personal favorite was Richard Diamond. Dave once told me that he hated drawing women, but look how wonderfully he created them!

Barbara Cook, the AIC Customer Service Manager, loved Fu Manchu. Although my color copy scan doesn't do it justice, the detail on the original piece of art was exceptional.

When it came time to do Ma Perkins and Young Widder Brown -- which turned out to be our Holiday 1998 catalog (the 100th AIC catalog and our very last) -- I forewarned Dave and he produced artwork on layers of acetate. Since it was the Holidays, the one thing we wanted to do was make it a little more "Christmas-y." Well... I added a string of Christmas Lights on the house for the catalog cover. However, the house on the album cover to the right is just as Dave created it.
