Fashion comes and goes, but art that might have come from the side of a van is forever. The cover artists from Dragon magazine, a staple of my pimply years, all have websites now, from Keith Parkinson to the ghastly Clyde Caldwell to Larry Elmore (who is putting his old Dragon comic, SnarfQuest, online). The grand master of bodacious barbarian babe art, Frank Franzetta, has a site, too. Relive your adolescence through gleaming swords, vanquished dragons, and hyperdefined musculature! (Warning: Not all pictures are work-safe.)

From Franzetta's site.

" Our prayers are with all the victims and their families in this terrible tragedy."

I wonder who he prays to...

I just wish that these artists would paint some women every now and then.

This rocks! I was looking for, and never found, My Art of Dragonlance book just the other week.

I was unaware of the Snarf Quest/Jar-Jar Binks connection until now, probably just a coincidence.

I wish Wormy from Dragon Magazine was still around.

Keith Parkinson's site reminds me how much I hate right-click disabling. I just wanna open stuff in a new window! :P

Right-click the picture but don't release the button, then hit the return key to dismiss the pop-up window, then release the right mouse button, you should then be able to select "open in new window".

Or, you know, hold down shift and click.

I've only ever read one Dragon magazine. I must have run in the wrong crowds, because fantasy and RPGs were never something my friends cared for, even though I kind of liked them. It didn't help that most of my family and the teachers at my school thought D&D was satanic.

Bobo123: You can find a Wormy archive here. Trampier himself is apparently in seclusion.

Me too! I bought every issue 1-50. From the newstand. And still have them in the basement carefully stored away for when they will be worth millions.

Thanks Yogurt, weird about Trampier though, he's a real talent.
