Today May 17th, Sending out Happy Birthday Wishes to Comic Book Artist/Illustrator Linda Medley, yep! Of Course you know that Linda "is an Eisner Award winning Comic Book author and illustrator, known for her "Castle Waiting" series of graphic novels."
Originally from Stockton, California, Linda now lives and works in Portland, Oregon. A freelance illustrator since 1985, Linda Medley has worked in the comics industry as a penciller, inker, painter, colorist and sculptor. Her pencilling work includes stints on both Justice League and Doom Patrol for DC, as well as the Galactic Girl Guides for Tundra. She has also illustrated children's books, and "her paintings have appeared on the covers of Paradox Press's Family Man, Howard Cruse's Stuck Rubber Baby, and TSR, Inc.'s Dragon magazine, to name just a few"-wikipedia.
She continues to work on new "Castle Waiting" stories.
I was honored to include this portrait of Linda in my second book of artists portraits "The Artist Within: Book 2".
