Twisted landscapes, ominously swirling skies, creatures plucked from myth and nightmare. And women-passionate, strong, rendered with extraordinary anatomical detail, who captivate with their beauty and fierceness. Born of the heated imaginations of husband-and-wife artists Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell, the Fantasy Calendar for 2009 features thirteen all-new paintings that plunge the viewer into a world that is dark, dynamic, and mysterious, ruled by magic and roamed by fearsome beasts. A priestess sleeps among the tangled roots of a tree, oblivious to the menacing robot looming over her. Two sensuous maidens lull a colorful dragon into submission. A woman battles to stay astride her powerful white steed, her eyes steely and intense. Weaving the dramatic images together is The Stones of Thay'mir, an original story by C.J. Henderson.
