This awesome image was done by Ron Horsley, who is a student at the Art Institute here in Las Vegas. Ron also created a poster with Epstein and my store info done up as a mock movie poster that's framed at my store, so if you're in the neighborhood stop by and check it out - it's a keeper!
Some background on Epstein: Epstein is my store logo / mascot. The artist who visually created Epstein is Keir Eastveld (a great guy who needs to keep in touch with some of the old gang better, but I know that life often gets in the way). I told Keir that I wanted a lizard wearing ska clothing exuding attitude, and his illustration more than captured what I was looking for. A few years back I had a sketchbook that I'd take to the San Diego conventions and I'd have artists draw their versions of Epstein and I've gotten quite a few great illos in that book (I actually stopped asking artists to draw Epstein because one day I came to the realization that as cool as the character looks, it is a busy character to draw). Another long time friend, Rick Tucker, has done some very cool versions of Epstein recently that I'm trying to incorporate into some near future plans that I'll be sharing both here and in my store soon.
