In Celebration of the works of: Artist TIM WHITE

Because one of my favorite authors is Alan Dean Foster, and another is HP Lovecraft, I was exposed to the work of Tim White.  I loved his work, and soon began to seek it out. That is a very common occurrence, you begin one pastime and it intersects with another, and then you've enlarged your area of interests.  In my case, I thought some of the Tim White work I liked was Michael Whelan's (a future spotlight) due to the color use, and liked very much the covers of another set of books, the Cthulhu/Lovecraft books, and didn't recognize the work as Tim White.  So, for me, I was enjoying the work of Mr. White in one area, but also, two other areas, simultaneously.  I encourage you to click the pics to enlarge them, and just take a look at how bloody awesome, huge, insanely detailed, thought provoking, brilliant they are.
