The Art of Thomas Yeates
Check out the new website for comics artist/illustrator Thomas Yeates. Thomas is my current favorite artist for Tarzan, following very much in the footsteps of classic Tarzan artist Hal Foster and joining Russ Manning and Jesse Marsh as one of the top Tarzan artists of all time. There are plenty of examples of Thomas's artwork at the site, including big galleries of Tarzan and other Edgar Rice Burroughs characters, and a nifty gallery of various commissions where Thomas draws Batman, Swamp Thing, and some fantastic renderings of Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane.
I'm the proud owner of three Thomas Yeates originals, but I don't have scans of any of them, so we'll have to make do with the nice Tarzan illo above. Thomas did the amazing pen and ink illustration of Tarzan and Conan that some of you have seen. It's one of my prize possessions.
Anyway, website is here:
