Terry lives near Chicago, IL. and works in the story board field of advertising. He has had several children's books published over the years as well.
Being a huge Vampirella fan he has several Vampirella paintings on his web site, which are reproduced below.
He informs me that "Vampi is one of my favorite heroines. I am always trying to get better at female anatomy because of her. I work in all mediums from time to time but I usually do Vampi in Casein or Gouache paints.
"I paint her with joy and admiration." I can't argue with that as it shows.
January 2010 saw two pieces of Terry's art joining my personal collection (the first two shown below). I can only reiterate that no matter how detailed a scan you put on the internet, nothing compares with the original item. If you have a chance to pick up some of Terry's work, do so. You won't regret it.
Both pieces are very impressive, but I have to say that the painting of Vampirella by the crashed spaceship is my favourite of the two for a number of reasons.
- I love the look on Vampirella's face,
- the detail of the sky is very impressive,
- the spaceship has a very "retro" 50's look, and
- Terry painted this picture for me, which makes it a much more personal item.
Thank you, Terry. You are a star.
