An old Portfolio Piece of Art

It's always nice to discover things that haven't been seen in years.  This piece of art I created was hiding away in a portfolio in my attic.  Yes, far long before Digital Photography and Adobe Photoshop.

Back in the 70's and 80's we had apparatuses such as Stat Machines, Burning Plates and the Lucy Machine which enlarged images to draw from.  We had no layers to play with and create effects as we today do in Photoshop.  What we had was a Wax Machine for Pasting up Mechanicals and a large gallon can of Rubber Cement. Typesetting and getting the Kerning just right...  No room for error and no chance to edit after.  Just utilizing your hands and creating as to what medium you desired to work with. 

Oh, those were the days!
