Flash of the Blade

Flash of the Blade Art by Jason Beam with Brandi Michelle Bourgon and Photography by Dan Peterson


Stunning Benchwarmer’s model Brandi Michelle Bourgon and Dan Peterson‘s killer photography gave me a great base to start with on an illustration topic I’ve wanted to work on for quite awhile.

Those who know me well, know that I’m a huge Maiden fan. I’ve been dedicated to Eddie and The Boys for 23 years, and I got pretty excited at the prospect of doing a Maiden-inspired piece. In the true tradition of one of my most important mentors, Derek Riggs, I decided to focus on my favorite songs to use as topics.
