Transcript Don Maitz b. June 10, 1953 Paier School of Art, 1975, Top of Class Award University of Hartford Art School One of the nominees for this year's World Fantasy Award for Best Artist, Don Maitz has produced work that will be familiar to many fantasy lovers. He has created over seventy-five paperback covers for such publishers as Simon & Schuster, Playboy Press, Fawcett, Berkley, Ace, DAW, Popular Library, and Doubleday & Co. Other clients have included NBC, TV Guide, Bell Telephone, and he has made film strips for Harper & Row. Maitz's art has appeared in exhibits at the New Britain Museum of American Art, Headquarters Gallery, and the Society of Illustrators 22nd Annual exhibit, where he was awarded the silver medal. Other honors have included the Best Artist Award at the 6th World Fantasy Convention and Second Place—Best Professional Artist at the 38th World Science Fiction Art Show. "In becoming a visual artist, I found myself faced with dilemmas. What subjects to realize—portraits, landscapes, still lifes or abstracts? In what form should the subjects be represented—drawings, paintings, sculpture or collage? How should I approach the subject—impressionistically, realistically, surrealistically or abstractly? Through experimentation I found I enjoyed all of the above and could not make a choice as to which particular art form to claim as my own. I decided to enter a field where all of the above could be subjected to my discretion. I attempt to show with conviction the furthest reaches of my imagination with whatever materials are suited to the occasion. The experience is often an enjoyable one and if my enjoyment is communicated to the viewer, then I feel the artwork is a success. "Calling myself a fantasy illustrator, by definition, means that I am explaining/exemplifying imagination unrestrained by reality. My goal is to entertain visually, to produce a fantastic scene where make-believe, pretend, and 'what it' run free. Illustrating the book jackets of fantastic stories calls for reflecting the nature of an author's ideas in a visually refreshing manner so that someone looking for diversion in their day to day routine will have, at a glance, some idea of the book's content and be entertained at the same time."
