I don’t know when I first saw Boris Vallejo’s and Julie Bell’s art, but I grew up reading comic books by the British comic book artist Don Lawrence and his art made such an impact on me that when I first saw Vallejo’s, something clicked. It’s high fantasy, science fiction, with dynamism and romanticism mixed with action, adventure, and bulging muscles.

I’ve always wanted to recreate Boticceli’s “Birth of Venus”, but Vallejo’s version (signed 1987) is more my
style. Plus there’s a cat involved.

And so, happy birthday, Mr. Vallejo. I know nude men aren’t really your thing, but they’re mine, and I hope you’ll like this little tribute.
