IN MEMORIAM

DECEMBER 1954 - JUNE 2009
Iím also the person who designed the infamous neck-tie costume for Red Sonja.  It was never drawn the way I intended it because Mary Wilshire didnít understand that it was leather and not fur on the top, and that it was a sash, it was supposed to be more like a pirate thing.  At the time Adam Ant was very big so I was trying to get those pirate elements in there, and it never looked the way I intended it to look.

A discarded sketch idea for a Red Sonja cover.  The sketch itself is somewhat reminiscent of Dave's art teacher, John Buscema, and shows that Dave has mastered the rough sketch format.
