Well, I tried to keep crass commercialism from invading our otherwise academic
list, but when pressed...
I do pen and ink illustrations as a side hustle, mostly commission work of
people's homes and various commercial properties.
I have done several railroad subjects, stations and such, but no PC up to this
point. If the group is interested, I could work up a proposal to do a series
of PC images either as prints for sale, or perhaps a calendar for 2003.
I am a member of the Western Maryland Historical Society, and they have
produced pictorial calendars for years, with great success as a membership
incentive and a fund raiser. While in years past, the subjects have been
photos from various collections, this year's is a series of paintings of WM
subjects. It's fantastic.
A black and white calendar of high quality line drawings would be relatively
inexpensive to produce, and planning for a project right now would give us
plenty of time to develop it before the fall, when it would have to be ready.
I would be willing to provide the 12 illustrations for the calendar at no cost,
(I usually charge $250 for an 11x14 drawing) provided I retain the copyrights
for future sales of framable prints. The PCRRHS would bear the cost of
producing the calendar, and I would bear the cost of producing prints.
Since I am coming at this from an historical perspective, it will be necessary
to work from existing photos of PC subjects. To the best of my knowledge,
using photographic references as the basis for original artwork is not an
infringement of copyright law. As such, favorite pictures in your collection
can be used to produce the drawings. Frequently I will combine elements from
several photos to develop an original composition. Wherever necessary, proper
credit for the subject matter would be provided.
For the record, I have not yet joined the PCRRHS, nor am I an officer or Board
For those of you with decision making authority, or anyone interested in
commissioning an individual piece, e-mail me, and I will send you scans of some
portfolio pieces for your consideration.
I hope I have not crossed the threshold of Jerry's topic limitations. Any
further discussion should be off-list so as not to clutter up the bandwidth.

Thanks for your time...
