RIP: James Cawthorn

Sad news…

James Cawthorn, British sf/fantasy illustrator, comics artist and historian, passed away on Tuesday, December 2, 2008.

Cawthorn created early interpretations of many Michael Moorcock characters, including Elric of Melniboné. Moorcock himself considers Cawthorn’s redention to be the definitive Elric for him. He has also illustrated A.E. Merrit’s “The Metal Monster” and is credited (along with Moorcock) of writing the adaptation of The Land That Time Forgot, the 1975 film based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel.
