Ray Harryhausen


Growing up in the 60's-70's we saw some great stop motion special effects for that time. Most of them (if not all!) were accomplished by Ray Harryhausen. Jason and the Argonauts was a special favorite of mine. Those skeletons with swords!! And that Medusa!! Scary, scary stuff!

I was asked to paint Ray for a private commission. I jumped at the chance to pay tribute to a pioneer in special effects, and a great artist! Here's to you, Ray!!
