Leo Ratliff

I live in Pueblo, CO where I dabble in a little bit of everything. I enjoy writing, drawing, reading, playing billiards, fishing, camping, designing websites and kayaking. Most probably, not in that order! I am without any doubts inspired by the likes of Julie Bell, Boris Vallejo, Frank Frazetta, Larry Elmore, Clyde Caldwell, Luis Royo, Rowena Morrill, Keith Parkinson, Michael Whelan and of course, H.R Giger.  I'm incredibly interested in anything related to Tolkien, Dragonlance (Or Krynn in general.), Ravenloft, any of the worlds of Terry Brooks (Shannara, Landover) and the fantastically believable notions of Anne Rice's cast of vampires, witches and Taltos (Among other exciting characters). I'm just starting to get going on some art again, so some new pieces should be popping up here and there! Favourite movies All the Lord of the rings, anything sci-fi or fantasy and especially looking forward to the upcoming Elfstones of Shannara movie based on the novel by Terry Brooks. Favourite books I like anything by Tolkien. I also like the Dragonlance, Shannara and Dune series among many others.
