#Art of Fantasy 96 (Legends): Rowena Morrill

Something slightly different to what I usually post. However, this week's artist belongs to the "Legends" club and must be celebrated. Rowena A. Morrill, born in 1944 and known professionally as Rowena, is an American artist who specialized in science-fiction and fantasy illustrations. She is widely credited as one of the first female artists to impact paperback … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 96 (Legends): Rowena Morrill

#Art of Fantasy 79: Bruno Biazotto

My apologies for being late this week. School holidays and kids and writing do not mix very well. Nevermind finding time to search for awesome fantasy artists. And yet, I did. This week's artist is an immediate favourite of mine and you'll soon see why. Bruno Biazotto hails from Campinas, Brazil and works as a … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 79: Bruno Biazotto

#Art of Fantasy 19: Jeffrey Catherine Jones

Frank Frazetta once called Jeffrey Catherine Jones "the greatest living painter".

She was also a particularly talented Fine Art artist as you'll see when you follow the links. Jones is one of those artists … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 19: Jeffrey Catherine Jones

#Art of Fantasy 16: Frank Frazetta

I'd say it's about time. I've been so loud on this blog about how much I love Frank Frazetta, how his art inspired me, and yet I have neglected to do an #Art of Fantasy post dedicated to him. I have a good reason, though. As a kid I used to leave the juiciest food for … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 16: Frank Frazetta

#Art of Fantasy 15: Kerem Beyit

Frazetta and Brom served as his primary inspiration and because he is self-taught, for Kerem, they were also his teachers, guiding him through his own process of maturity. Not unlike a writer reading … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 15: Kerem Beyit

#Art of Fantasy 11: Simon Bisley

I first discovered Simon Bisley's work many years ago while reading 2000 AD. He illustrated ABC Warriors and Sláine. He later also did Lobo for DC. Yes, if you think I was and still am crazy about Sláine (the character is roughly based on Irish lore), you would be correct. He also did a variety of other comics … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 11: Simon Bisley
