Y’know those sciffy characters above on the DP’s header and sprinkled throughout ForbiddenPlanetUSA.com’s pages? Well, those are the work of Ms. Saskia Lenis, who, aside from having served as the New York City’s Store’s resident toy mistress for a number of years, is a hugely talented artist in her own right. She’s got a flickr page up that I encourage you to visit now if not sooner….
She’s posted a number of sketchbook entries, character studies and such she’s done for various comic and illustration projects. I can’t wait until she gets around to uploading more inkwashes and paintings. Feel free to comment on her work, and/or commission her with a standard Rich and Famous contract.
