SCARLET #3: The Art of Linda Miller

Below: The subject of my article from the 3rd issue of SCARLET.

I'm honored to tell you that my article "The Art of Linda Miller," published last summer in the third issue of SCARLET: The Film Magazine, has been nominated for the prestigious Rondo Award! (As has this blog, amazingly!)

With magazine distribution the way it is today, many have not seen the issue, so I am publishing it here at TDSH.
Below are scans of the pages of my article as it appeared in June 2009. My subject was a well-loved member of the fan community for classic horror films, and a personal friend. Her work appeared in a special exhibit at both the 2009 Wonderfest and 2009 Monster Bash conventions. Sadly, Linda passed away in 2008.

Following the article scans are never before published photos of Linda.

If you wish to vote for this article or this blog, go to this
link. Please also consider voting for Linda for "Artist of the Year." Although she passed on in 2008, much of her work first appeared in 2009. Or even better, vote for Linda for "Monster Kid Hall of Fame."

You can also read my earlier 2007 interview with Linda, and see a gallery of her work,
here. More pictures have just been added; a few additional pics of her work appear at this post.

She is still missed!

Still very missed, indeed. I remember trading a lot of bad puns and funny ideas with her. A genius artist, a genius human being.

Thanks for the comment, Joe! You could keep up with her in the pun department!

I bought the ish due to the wonderful artwork on the cover and wanted to know who this artist was. Amazing, amazing artwork! I did not know her but by looking at her artwork I do know she was a truly talented and gifted artist. Thank you for posting more of her artwork DSH.
