I'd like to acknowledge the passing yesterday of artist and teacher James Christensen (1942 – Jan. 8, 2017), who created images of myth and magic that were infused with meaning. I met him several times in early 1990s, and he was a pioneer of bringing fantasy art to a mainstream audience.
He wrote: “Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” —A Journey of the Imagination: The Art of James Christensen
