A Major Spoilerite asked what I thought of Michael Turner’s art, so today’s Art Appreciation Moment features the Tomb Raider/Witchblade cover by Michael Turner and Tim Townsend.

Love him or hate him, you gotta appreciate Turner’s work.

This was the first time Mike and I ever worked together. I have fond memories attached to this piece. After visiting Orlando for Mega Con, Mike and I drove to Tampa for the weekend to see the Crossgen guys and just hang out. One night we even had a beautiful girl hang out where we were staying and sing and play guitar for us. Sounds funny but it was actually some real quality time. Though we’d been good friends for years we really connected on that trip. Good times.

I miss you every single day, Mikey.
