The Art Order - Warriors and Amazons: A Tribute to Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell

Boris and Julie have rocked the art world for years. They are most well known for their powerful images of stoic warriors, beautiful amazons and fearsome monsters. Their exquisite use of color and texture elevate the imaginative realism of their works. Their works can be seen through out the fantasy and sci-fi illustration world. They have worked for virtually every major publishing house with a SFF line, and can be seen on album covers, comics, video game art, motion picture advertising, and my favorite annual calendar.
