Kelly Freas was responsible for selling SO-MANY sci-fi books with his intriguing covers. I bought many just for his art and then stayed and read the books as well. He brought his own brand of sensuousity to the genre (I know that's not really a word, but I felt compelled to use it in honor of Freas' uniquisity).

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
