Ray Bradbury was one of those few science fiction writers embraced by a mainstream audience as well as the SF/Sci-Fi geeks. His work spanned from pulps and comics to elite hardback books and glossy magazines, from The Saturday Evening Post to Playboy and Esquire.
He was a gift and was embraced by all.

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.
