It's a tremendous honor to announce that a painting of mine, The Battle Under the Mountain, will be included in the At the Edge:Art of the Fantastic show at the Allentown Art Museum. The show will be the most comprehensive exhibition of fantasy art ever. Not only will it include present day masterpieces, but work from throughout the 20th and 19th centuries. And in a museum setting, it's great to see that art from this genre is finally getting some of the respect it deserves. A good deal of the credit for this new found respect has to go to the curators of the show, Pat and Jeannie Wilshire.  Can't wait to see the show!!


  1. Awesome man! I'm going to be there, I'm pumped for it!

  2. The show looks amazing and your piece that was included will be right at home with all the famous illustrators past and present!
