Alessandro Sacco posted a brand new interview with Larry Elmore over on the Acaeum forums. He’s looking for someone to publish it. I guess I better tell him American publishers generally don’t care to publish articles that have already been posted to the internet.
Larry Elmore is purely and simply one of the best fantasy artists ever and surely one of my favourites. Many, many gamers remember him for the great covers and artwork done for TSR Inc and, especially in Italy, for his amazing work on the Classic Dungeons & Dragons game (from Basic to Immortal boxed sets): his appearances in our country are always packed events and there is a very long line of fans of every age asking for an autograph or a drawing. I discovered Larry Elmore’s wonderful talent when, in 1986, I bought my very first copy of the Classic Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set (the famous ‘red box’) and became a great fan of his work. It’s a great honour and privilege being able to interview one of the Masters of Fantasy Art.
