Foreword by Boris Vallejo
Born in Lima, Peru, Boris Vallejo immigrated to the United States as a young man, with just $80 in his pocket. Before long his incredible oil paintings appeared on the covers of magazines such as Eerie, Creepy, and The Savage Sword of Conan, thus inspiring a new generation of young artists. Since then he has produced decades worth of fantasy art and is admired the world over as one of the all-time greats of the genre. Boris is married to renowned artist Julie Bell, who paints alongside him in their Pennsylvanian studio.
