Transcript Thomas Canty *• Thomas Canty, an accomplished artist/illustrator, is one of those nominated for the 1981 World Fantasy Award for Best Artist. His work is included in the permanent collection of the New Britain Museum of American Art. He has shown at the Kent University School of Art and is an exhibiting member of the Copley Society of Boston. He has had work published as limited edition prints, portfolios, and in illustrated book form by Archival Press, Black Lotus Press, Underwood/Miller Publishers, Donald M. Grant/ Publisher, Ariel and the Donning Company. He works in a variety of media: graphite, watercolor and oils. "Perhaps it's most important to me, in my own work, that a picture augment or illuminate a mood, rather than a moment in the story. In considering a book, I look on it as a means of communicating those ideas that I feel most and love best. When the mood of the book is in harmony a with my own it becomes a sympathetic vehicle, a means of expression, to carry the pictures. "In avoiding the ease of illustrating specifics in action and characterizations, and being concerned instead with the emotions expressed and elicted . . . the spirit of the book or tale, an artist-as-illustrator can greatly enhance the written word rather than be an encumbrance to its expression. "My pictures are, for the most part, literary pictures, in that they illuminate text or include text/ writing, as in Lady Ice, as a major visual element, this to the point that I see most pictures as being incomplete without words as either a visual part or as inspiration for a picture. "It is only just recently, with the cover picture for The Changing Land (Underwood/Miller Edition), and possibly with the working rough of Lady Fire that I have begun to suggest the subject's knowledge of the viewers' presence. The slight awareness in the eyes, the feeling that you are about to be acknowledged as an intruder establishes a certain tension which makes the picture that much more compelling. "By illustrating the mood of a book, allowing the subject a knowledge of the viewer, and combining texture and style in the drawing or painting, I always try to move towards a harmony between what's written and implied, between picture and print."
