Art of the Genre

Yep, TSR alum Jim Holloway had a girl too.  No Jim would argue that point, saying he had lots and lots of girls, practically every one he's ever done being attributed to some girl from his past.  A girlfriend here, a mail carrier, a girl he shot images of from the upper windows of the old TSR building as she walked bikini-clad to the Lake Geneva beach. 

Still, I see a lot of the same girl in his 80s stuff, that sometimes flaxen, sometimes dark-haired and always round-faced beauty that broke my damn heart every time I had to see her.  So you tell me, am I wrong, or does she repeat again and again?

Amusingly, I have also noticed the same thing in Jim’s art. I always wondered if this was just a fallback face he knew well, or someone special to him?
(I understand that Jim has now passed on, so I’ll finish this comment as a thank you to Jim for all the amazing art which has so enriched my life and gaming career. I never got the chance to meet you, but your art is an old friend that will always stay with me in my imagination.)
