First, I started with a templet to work off of, but I only used it to make a frame I did freehand on most of my illustrations as you can tell. Next, I moved on to my bold standout letter that is synonymous with Illuminated manuscripts, which took a couple times to perfect. Next, I worked on my border illustrations which took a lot of my time just trying to make it all tie together.
After starting out doing cartoons in the underground press, Mc Neill went on to a mainstream career as a high tech artist/illustrator. His work has appeared in publications ranging from The New York Times and Rolling Stone to National Lampoon and Marvel Comics.

What Chikankari is to Lucknow, Kasuti is to Karnataka. I discovered this embroidery when my parents were doing an assignment in Dharwad, Karnataka. The lady who did our housework brought in a village woman who made these sarees on order. This exothermic reaction produced heat that affected the tunnel. The clays are very sandy and have sand lenses that are under pressure. These burst out during mining.
The 50mm x 50mm x 40mm block is glued to the top of the main block, This is then sanded on All 4 sides to remove any excess glue. The next stage is to draw two lines on one of the flat surfaces with a jig [piece of wood 8mm thick] draw a line each side of the jig at a random angle. Make sure when cutting this out on the bandsaw that you cut on the inside of the pen line [ This is very important step ] Once this is cut out you have to sand both surfaces on a 6″ bench sander to the pen line [ Again this is very important for accuracy ].
Above them all were a large number of barrage balloons, these presumably attached to various ships as they were not of the conventional shape and design. The ordinary barrage balloon looked something like a floppy baggy elephant but those at the docks were apparently smaller, of smooth finish and relatively stream lined. Quite frequently one would break away from its mooring and drift upwards till they eventually exploded and slowly descended in.
Was it very easy for you to watch your youngest sister watch the man that you had loved for such a long time? How was it not having your father around for such along time? I could never be away from my parents for that long. It must have been tough to watch your sister die as well as your other sister get married to your best friend and the one who you thought could be your potential husband. I would never be able to have all that done to me in such a short period of time.
