I have never been too much of a phantastic fantasy art fan. But i grew up reading my Dad's underground comics like U-Comic, Heavy Metal and Pilot. So i am at least familiar with a bunch of fantasy artists from the 70s and 80s. The painting "Siren Song" from Boris Vallejo has been a favourite since back then and has been my MacBook's wallpaper for months now. Somehow i stumbled across some remakes/tributes lately in some dodgy bars. I collected photos of them and got a few more foundlings on the web. All slightly missing the erotic crackle of the original.
And hey, talking about "Heavy Metal"... wasn't there some mash-up in an episode of South Park?
