This is the studio: a curtainless bay window hung with plants, through which the southern light falls in speckled patterns (Boris doesn't depend on natural light for painting. He prefers a combination of warm and cool fluorescent lights which give him a facsimile of natural light that is unmoving, unchanging).
Conceived in the wide womb of legend, born into a narrowed world, dragons, no longer invulnerable, ride the arms of mortals and sing.
Boris Vallejo's science fiction/fantasy illustrations have apeared on the covers of some of SF's best, and he has worked on such well-known series as Tarzan. In this book, Vallejo showcases what he does best--bold and provocative paintings of sensuous women and strong men, set against mythical, otherworldly backgrounds. 41 illustrations, 29 in color.
