    Rodney Matthews - Original Illustration, "Wizard with Axe" (2003).

Long regarded as a leading fantasy illustrator, Matthews is offering some of his work at auction for the very first time. The piece offered here is rendered in tonal pencil, with an image area of approximately 13.5" x 9.75". In excellent condition on vellum, it is signed by the artist in the lower left.
