Keith Parkinson Tribute

SOE and SIGIL announced “The Masters of Fantasy Art – A Tribute to Keith Parkinson” art tour to 5 major cities this year.  I am a fan of Parkinson’s work even before he started working in the video game industry.  He did a lot of the EQ1 art and was art director for Vanguard until his death last year.

Thanks to Granik for letting me know about this.

    You know .. it’s another one of those “man, that sucks” that Parkinson’s last work was on Vanguard. It’s kinda like Raul Julia, an actor with an illustrious career .. but his last work was Street Fighter. Did Street Fighter suck? No, I actually kinda liked it .. but as an endcap to a career?

    Yeah you could say that. Maybe Keith had a vision of sharing his art with a mass audience, not actually thinking about how it might be considered a “sell-out” of sorts, or that Vanguard just might tank.

    I didn’t know the guy personally, or his reasoning behind his work with Sigil, but I do know he was a fantastic fantasy artist.

    A chase through the various linked sites didn’t reveal any info on which cities.

    Any idea?

    Well since The Art Institutes are involved, I might guess it would be the cities with an Art Institute. That’s just a guess on my part though.
