Karen: I was talking with a friend about the upcoming John Carter film, and we segued into a discussion of the work of artist Boris Vallejo. If you are of a certain age -mid 40s to mid 50s I'd say - you're probably very aware of Boris Vallejo. The man was prolific, painting amazing book covers and posters, that seemed to be everywhere in the 70s and 80s. His topics were almost always fantasy, with monsters, dragons, heroes with bulging muscles, and above all, scantily clad women. Perhaps some of his most memorable work includes the covers for Burroughs' Tarzan novels when they were re-issued in the 70s. He also painted covers for magazines, including this issue of Monsters Unleashed from Marvel.
So -thoughts about the man and his art?
