C.J. Cherryh, a veteran science fiction author, was very popular among the fans in the late '70s and early to mid-'80s. And even now, Cherryh is still writing away. Back in the fannish past, images from Cherryh's books popped up in science fiction convention art shows and were easily recognizable. Hence this nametag miniature, on which I depicted one of Cherryh's warrior space tribesmen, a mri. This is not a ninja but a desert fighter along the concept of the Tuareg of the Sahara. The miniature was among the bunch I gave to a friend to market at various conventions.
Mri fighter miniature is ink and watercolor on Fabriano paper, 2 1/4" x 3 1/2", summer 1981.
