Jim Fitzpatricks Celtic art

Jim Fitzpatricks Celtic art is pretty nice to look at, and unlike the otherwise excellent Boris Vallejo website, all content is free to download. Also check out his assertion that he produced one of the more famous Che Guevara posters which has an interesting (typically irish) story as to how it went down in Ireland.

He does some incredibly beautiful work. I could spend hours going through his website. I only wish I could afford some of the originals, but, for the moment, I will have to settle for his portfolios and books.

I had the chance to meet with Jim when I was in Ireland back in '87 ( after the '87 WorldCon in Brighton ) and he was a very gracious host.

Because I had been collecting his artwork for over a decade, it was a great thrill to meet him. It was an even greater thrill, because a week earlier, when I was in a bookstore in Brighton, a friend of mine pointed out a copy of his rarest portfolio ( and one of the two I didn't have ) at the bookstore. I was able to have him autograph it when I saw him. I'll never sell it.

How very lovely. His artwork reminds me of Mucha with a
strong Celtic sensibility. Thanks for the great link.

Oops. Sorry, forgot to provide context for Mucha.
