Location: New England, United States

I am a Hugo award-winning fantasy/SF artist who works on both publishing projects and film concept work(such as Jimmy Neutron and most recently, The Ant Bully) but I have a passion for landscape work, small paintings and exploring the properties of paint. This blog will mostly showcase my "painting-for-the-day" as kind of a personal voyage. I'll also be inserting sketches,photos and ideas of projects I am working on, that I can, when I can, so look for those every so often(usually as paint is drying!)

Ricardo Montalban and Patrick McGoohan: RIP

Well, SF loses more greats. Ricardo Montalban passed away at 88 today in California. He forever immortalized the role of Khan Noonian Singh in STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN and of course, the original episode "Space Seed" from the series. I can say I worked on a film with him: he was a voice of one of the Council of Elder Ants in THE ANT BULLY. And of course, Patrick McGoohan who's known to most SF and genre fans as THE PRISONER the old series from the 60's that was so ahead of it's time.

Both will be missed for their sheer presence on screen.

Dos Equis should have hired Ricardo Montalban to do a few ads for them, he could have done their "most interesting man in the world" bit perfectly (he has a Spanish accent too)
