BWS on "BEGUILED"
“This was supposed to be the cover to EPIC, the magazine that published "The Beguiling" in 1982. I finished it about, oh, say, twelve years after the initial deadline.
EPIC has long since met its demise through
no fault of mine. Back in ’82, though, I was so totally fagged
out (fatigued) from creating the story itself, that I was just,
y’know . . . I didn’t want to have to draw another
wistful young knight in armor ever again, or for the rest of my
life, which ever came first. So I abandoned this piece half-done,
let EPIC publish my Icarus painting on the cover instead.”
Right: "Beguiled" (1982/1995)
