I remember one of my university tutors saying, “if you can illustrate realistically you will always be in demand.” Well, Francis Vallejo has mastered realism and is one very busy illustrator. He is consistently working on personal and commercial projects, as well as teaching at The Art Department. His clients include Playboy, Snapple, ImagineFX, and has been published in Spectrum, Totoro Forest Project book, and Dolor. What I think I really admire more then the anatomic accuracy is the expression and energy he manages to bring into his work. The best place to find out more about Mr. Vallejo is over on his blog.
