THE BALANCE OF POWER
As an illustrator, most of Wayne's pictures have been done with an end in mind, a specific book or whatever. But on the rare occasions when he's not racing to meet some impossible deadline he also makes pictures just for the fun of it. Often these passing ideas can be adapted for commissions that come along so are rarely wasted. In fact having a draw-ful of half realised ideas is often a lifesaver. But occasionally nothing fits, which was more or less the case with this picture, until the chance came to use it on the cover of his retrospective collection. What is it all about? Well you tell us, but the idea wouldn't rest until it found a home.
