Walter Velez (1939-2018) was known for his wholly original style of expression, an attribute of the top tier of illustrators working in the 1980s, and one much valued by collectors today. This original painting created for the cover of Lin Carter's fantasy novel surely demonstrates Velez's "signature style" - at the top of his game - for DAW Books, 1987. Great details, characters, and color combine to produce a great "mock horror" cover that is totally Velez. In acrylics on illustration board 27" x 16" and signed.
