Today the blog looks at a real comic aficionado, the wonderful Simon Fraser. This passionately creative artist is not only responsible for co-creating one of 2000AD’s most popular characters (Nikolai Dante) but is the creator, writer and artist on Act-i-vate’s Lilly MacKenzie. The popularity of the latter strip led to it being picked up by the Judge Dredd Megazine.
Simon is very busy, often juggling strip work with covers and his various blogs. In fact, it was on his blog in October last year when he announced he had a gap in his schedule and was open for commissions. I, and fellow fan James Stacey, jumped at the chance!
James’ amazing commission can be seen above, He says “Here’s my Dante / Lilly commission Simon did for me. I asked for a Frazetta inspired piece with Dante’s bio blade in one hand, wine in the other and Ms MacKenzie taking the place of adoring eye candy. I think he’s done it proud!”
That is only one of five Scrotnig commisions on the page.
