In the work of fantasy author Katherine Kurtz, no character is more prominent or heroic than Alaric Morgan. He is one of the main heroes of Kurtz' long-lasting "Deryni" books, set in a magical medieval world. A big, blond hunk, he strides, casts spells, and battles his way through at least 9 of her books. Katherine is currently writing a series about his childhood, called the "Childe Morgan" series. By the age of fourteen he's already a competent magic user. This illustration, for a fan magazine, shows him brandishing his sword at some unseen foe, though he doesn't look too threatened.
"Alaric Morgan" is ink on Bristol board, 7" x 10", December 1987.
