Children of Arable
By Tim Hildebrandt
“Tim's work doesn't attract it grabs. Big, bold sweeps of, yes, of shadow that roll forward like waves, until the eye is blinded by the comparative brilliance of a lamp, a side lit face, a mermaid's eyes. Not, “I'd like you to look at this”, but “I'm going to make you look at this!””
—Alan Dean Foster, “The Fantasy Art Techniques of Tim Hildebrandt”
