The official site of Fantasy Illustrator and cover artist Philip Lawvere.
"People have begun to ask if they can purchase any of my old pieces. Unfortunately, therein lies a sad tale. I left a bunch of paintings with my girlfriend at the time, who's mother eventually threw out. She says they scared her, and I really can't blame her. She's the sweetest woman. and I have very fond memories of her. I also gave away a lot of work to friends, because I didn't take my work very seriously at that age. I traded the Pleasure to Kill cover (my favorite piece) for a guitar. It was from a shop called Be Bop Music in Shoeneburg, Berlin, and the owner's name was Jurgen Shwartz. I've tried to find him, but they say he moved to Tahiti or somewhere..." Philip Lawvere - 2015 Interview
