I have been a fan of Ray
Lago's ever since I saw the artwork that he created for the Strangers in
Paradise trading card set. His likeness of Francine and Katchoo was
astounding. After I was exposed to his artwork, I found that he had
previously created artwork that had angelic themes. This was perfect
for my Winged Victory sketchbook! So, I contacted Ray, arranged for
a commission and waited for the return of the book. The results have
definitely been worth the wait! I will be indebted to Ray forever.
