If there was one form of art that I could acquire and be a master at it then I would probably choose the art if drawing. the funny thing is I never used to draw anything myself, or even show glimpses of this ‘creative’ side. So admitting this desire is strange even for me. But,, for as long as I can remember I’ve been following the artwork of artists that I love and respect. I can list them all by name, and I will shortly.

There is something in these pieces of art that speaks to me, it touches my soul and make me want to escape the the fantasy world I so often experience in my PC games. Here’s a few of my favorite artists. some have already passed on, while others are now called digital impressionists.

Frank Frazetta

I absolutely loved the work of Frank Frazetta, especially his Death Dealer series…

Gerard Brom

His work may be considered a bit “disturbed” and dark, but I love it!
