Clyde Caldwell (right) is a fantasy/sci-fi/D&D artist whose name I became familiar with only recently, via introduction by Sweet Baby Jay. Born in 1948 in North Carolina, Caldwell first began working regularly as an illustrator in the early 80's, with the rise of the role-playing phenomenon. Similar in form and function to the works of Vallejo or Frazetta (more so Vallejo), or even the like-minded swords and sorcery of fellow D&D wizard Erol Otus, Caldwell has found a solid niche in the fantasy-art genre, and his "future of the 80's" style is the perfect analog to anything from Nocturnus' The Key to Cirith Ungol's Frost And Fire. Enjoy a couple dozen lo-res replications of Caldwell's work, selected at random, then head over to his website and buy some prints. But only if you are a fan of heavy metal, boobs, or spaceships.
