I was invited to be the
of Honor at the 1995 Origins International Game Expo and Fair,
held in Philladelphia PA that year. They treated me really well,
and inreturnI painted this for the cover of the program book.
It was great to have complete control over what was going to go
onto the cover. I had been wanting to do some kind of painting
involving Luftwaffe jets and rocket planes tangling with B-17
bombers, but when this came along I couldn't resit turning it
into a science fiction concept.
Actually, on the models page
can see a rough concept idea of the painting I want to do. It
is called B-17 Run. Click
Unfortunately the original art
destroyed in a fire caused by the owner of the gallery where it
was up for sale. The jerk wouldn't even compensate me after he
got the insurance money. Luckily for the honest people in the
world, this gallery went out of business.
