If there were ever a church or religion established for illustration, Jon Foster would definitely be an apostle. He would bring the message of the heroic to the masses, push the believers to embrace the creatively divine and do so with a spirit of unrepentant zeal. If you could combine the rich, boldness of N.C. Wyeth with the energy and imagination of Frank Frazetta, you'd have Jon...maybe. Even that description of his art falls a little short to us. Let's just say he's one of the finest working in his field and is highly respected by his peers.
After a month or so of serious stalking (our dedication knows no boundaries), we finally got in contact with him and Foster agreed to come on the show. Our conversation is, at times, all over the place, but we think it stands as a wonderful and intimate glimpse of the artist and the man. Rarely do you find his kind of talent matched with his kind of humility, but then again, Jon is rare.
