Davy Liu’s passion for his work was instilled in him from the very beginning. As a child, he loved to use pencil and pastel on paper to capture things he took visually. Davy’s family immigrated to the United States from Taiwan when he was thirteen, and he sought refuge in his natural talent – art – as he struggled to adapt to the new culture and language. After graduating from Ringling School of Arts and Design in Florida, Davy became a Disney animator and worked on such films as Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Mulan and The Lion King.

Gary Kwapisz  became one of the defining Conan artist of the 1980s. He is also responsible for two, self-published Civil War graphic novels called, interestingly enough, Civil War Adventures. These books bring history to life, telling the story of America’s most terrible war. They are a loving collaboration with his old Conan partner, Chuck Dixon. Appearing Courtesy of Realm Makers
