    A paid commission to illustrate 16 heroines and heroes from the selective works of Jane Austen for a card game
Good-Humoured Ladies, Agreeable Gentlemen
Sixteen Portraits of Tender Hearts from Jane Austen's Novels
Early last winter I received the most delightful commission request  from a very established university professor of telecommunications. He was in the process of creating "a Jane Austen card game," the rules of which entail matchmaking the various protagonists from a selection of her stories.

Of course, being an ardent fan of the regency era and an obsessive pursuer of Macfadyen!Darcy, I could hardly decline such an opportunity!

Thus, over the course of several months I spent time refreshing my memory of each love-struck heroine and suitor, depicting sixteen female and male characters as they were conceived in Austen's prose, in cinematic casting agencies, and in my mind's creative canvas.
