España Sheriff

I am a San Francisco based artist specializing in Science Fiction and Fantasy art and have been exhibiting in art shows and contributing fan art to fanzines pretty much since I first entered fandom a decade and a half ago.

I've always been fascinated by the genre artists of the Golden Age and the mid-Century such as Virgil Finlay, Ed Emshwiller and the inimitable Richard Powers and hope to be buried Pharaoh-style with a complete run of Galaxy Magazine and a Hubley Atomic Disintegrator.

I mainly work in acrylic, ink and some digital but have also recently become interested in beading, wirework and other crafty pursuits, you can find the fruit of those endeavours at my ArtFire store.

When not drawing I dabble in fanwriting and costuming, often both at the same time in the pages of Yipe! Costuming Fanzine.

For the curious; my first name is pronounced "ess-PAHN-yah" like the country and my last name is pronounced exactly the way it looks, "SHEH-riff", as in Sheriff's Department.
