DARRELL K. SWEET: 1934-2011
Fantasy artist Darrell K. Sweet passed away on December 5th at the age of 77.
I have to make a confession that I was never a great fan of Sweet's work. Having said that, the man deserved a lot of respect. The man could paint a fantasy or SF book cover like nobody's business. His work graced more than 3000 different titles including Piers Anthony's Xanth books and all of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series.
I did not know that Sweet was also an accomplished Western artist. He was talented and prolific and I am saddened to hear of his passing.
I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?
