    • Thanks. It’s more as a concept piece than a full fledged fantasy illustration. I painted it back in the early 90’s. It was an attempt to envision a look and feel for an action comic book that was never realized; practically a random and virtually meaningless concept I had in my head. I wondered what a member of a cat worshipping cult might look like, and this is what I came up with.

    • Yes, it’s a pretty blurred and unedited photo. I felt it was enough for this post.

      I created the image to appear as though it were a potential comic cover or poster. This sort of look was most popular back in the 80’s and trailing of in the 90’s.

      Sometimes I look at my old work to remind myself of where I’ve come from artistically.

  1. Ouh, love the illustration, as much as all the nice stuff you wrote about me :-p Do you still make illustrations? I drew ALL THE TIME when I was younger, but I can’t find the time anymore (even though I barely do anything these days) – my muses have all fled.😦

    • Oh yes, I’m definitely still primarily an illustrator although it doesn’t seem like it. Photography rules the world now, and I’m enjoying that but I will return to my roots of drawing and painting whenever I can.
