|I met Mark Roland on the web through discussions on art and music, and have
ended up purchasing several hand pulled prints from him. His work is beautiful and
has many facets as you can see Here. The latest Realms of Fantasy has cover art by
Mark in collaboration with Alan M. Clark. They also did Fallen Giants # 6 shown on
the left. Click image to order. Take a look at his work. I know you'll enjoy it.

As many of you may have heard Frank Frazetta has passed
away. If you are on my site looking at fantasy art there is no
need to tell you who Frank was. Frazetta took all the fantastic
art that came before him, and fused it into his own unique
style, creating one of the most dynamic artistic expressions to
date. I think it safe to say that there isn't anyone who came
after that wasn't influenced one way or another. I had the
pleasure of meeting Frank and Ellie years ago at the opening
of the first Museum. There were many of his fans there, and
he was just wonderful to us. Getting to see his originals in
person was a pleasure. I hope they continue to be displayed.

Al Williamson passed away recently.
He had been ill for some time, and
this is a sad loss for his family and
many friends. I had met Al several
times and he always had great stories
and was easy to talk to. He leaves
behind a great legacy. Click HERE
for his Wikipedia page, which gives
a great overview of his career.
